Château Lestage’s vineyard dates back to Gallo-Roman times but it was only in the 19th century that the present manor, a splendid example of Napoleon III architecture, was built. Marcel Chanfreau bought the property in 1963 and his grandchildren are continuing his work today.

This magnificent property, beautifully positioned on well-exposed slopes went happily through the XXth century, classified Cru Bourgeois Supérieur in 1932, classification confirmed in 2003.

This privileged location, with its early ripening terroir, offers us tasty wines that age superbly. Since the 2008 vintage, the classification has been changed to a yearly wine certification and our wine has been certified “Cru Bourgeois” every year since then.
