My first wine memory
Harvest to my gran father's vineyard

One word to describe my wine

The history of the Château
The château Barateau vineyard exidet in the 18th century. Abbot Barateau, priest of Saint-Laurent, came in 1820 to bless the first stone of this winemaking estate. The owners of the time took the blessing to the extreme, giving their château the churchman's name. The service of wine has remainded its only creed over the years. The vineyard, planted on a good chalky-clay south-facing hilltop, is on the road to Saint-Julien. The estate belonged successively to the Véron, Tandonnet, Thollon, Pla and Leroy who undertook the modernisation of the facilities and the doubling of the cellar capacity to cope with the acquisition of the Saint-Sauveur vineyard in 1989. The château Barateau bought back in 2011 by Mr. LI.
