It is through the centuries that men have quite naturally settled along the Coteaux De La Sanguèze, a place where the Domaine du Grand Châtelier dominates. Passionate about the land and nature, it was in the 1870s that great-grandfather François Lebas was seduced by the place. He settled in Le Chatelier where he cultivated the vines and the love of a job well done. This is how a few decades later, the grandfather, then the father, inherited the estate. After a few years alongside his father and thanks to his studies in viticulture and oenology, Patrick Lebas took over the estate in 1994. Impregnated by this love of the land transmitted from generation to generation, it is with pleasure that this winegrower in Vallet today perpetuates the know-how and passion of an entire family.
Our Domaine du Grand Châtelier is located in the wine-growing town of Vallet, 20 minutes from the city of Nantes and 3 hours from Bordeaux and Paris, in the heart of the Nantes vineyard. This vineyard near Vertou has a privileged geographical and geological location with vineyard slopes offering exceptional panoramas.
Being a winegrower is much more than a profession, it is a passion that teaches us patience and respect for nature and the terroir, to be continued…
Our way of harvesting and vinifying
In order to be able to harvest all the plots of the estate under the best conditions of maturity, we have chosen a mixed harvest: manual and mechanical. A gentle and respectful pneumatic pressing of the grape extracts the juice then ready to be vinified, vinification which is adapted to the plot (age, grape variety) and to the different terroirs in order to promote the expression specific to each cuvée.
