A 100% family-owned vineyard, the « Vignobles Courselle» started in 1950, when André Courselle bought Château Thieuley located in the famous France Bordeaux Region and lay the foundation of a great vineyard.
In 1972, his son Francis Courselle, a young engineer and oenology professor, took over the management of Thieuley vineyards. In 30 years, the acreage increased from 4 to 80 hectares spread over three properties : Château Thieuley, Clos Sainte Anne and Château Saint Genes. Marie and Sylvie Courselle, Francis Courselle’s two daughters, inherited from the family passion. Today, they took over the business and the destiny of Thieuley.
Since the vintage 2011, our range enlarges with our two « Vin de France » Les Truffières Chardonnay and Syrah. A new challenge for us ! Indeed, in 2007, we decided to plant those two varieties (forbidden to produce Bordeaux AOC). Just next to Chardonnay and Syrah , Francis Courselle, a great fan of Truffles, planted also more than one hundred truffle-trees, on a soil said to be adapted to them.
