This sumptuous Château, bought by the family of Mister Ducau in 1920, acquired the Domaine de Gaudiet and became from that time the Château Loupiac-Gaudiet.

This property currently belongs to Marc Ducau in association with his nephew Daniel Sanfourche, who is in charge.

With a south-south-east situation, the viney ard benefits f rom exceptional sunshine. Its position on the banks of the Garonne provides the best possible conditions f or the development of Botrytis cinerea (cryptogamic malady of the grape which develops thanks to the combination of sun plus morning humidity).

The result is a wine with a certain typicity of the appellation offering finesse, elegance and fruit.
