This property of nine hectares, spread across the communes of Saint Christophe des Bardes and Saint Hippolyte in Saint-Emilion, is owned by Bernard Moueix and managed by his daughter Catherine. Catherine benefits from the advice of renowned professor of oenology, consultant and winemaker Denis Dubourdieu.
The vineyards are planted with merlot (85%) and cabernet franc (15%) on excellent clay-limestone soils and the vines average 30 years of age. Everything is geared towards producing the best-quality fruit, from progressive crop thinning and a green harvest, to keep yields low, to hand-picking and sorting of the grapes at the winery.
The house was built in 1670 by a lieutenant-general of the royal armies and is surrounded by Tauzin oaks, from which the château takes its name and which are famous for producing truffles. It seems almost too good to be true: truffles and fine Saint-Emilion wines in the same place!
