Gonzague and his enologist wife Marjolaine, Director of Château Labégorce in Margaux, created their atypical Bordeaux domaine by purchasing well-situated parcels in four Right Bank appellations, and by the third vintage, Gonzague’s wines were receiving rave reviews from France’s respected Guide Hachette. Gonzague and Marjolaine just built a new home next to their 7.9 acres of 50 year-old vines in the Parsac sector of the Montagne Saint-Emilion appellation. Gonzague’s vineyard research led him to Parsac when he uncovered the tiny hamlet’s little-known reputation as one of the Right Bank’s wine-producing jewels in centuries past. Just ten minutes from their new home is the 6.2 acre namesake Pavillon parcel in the smaller Saint- Emilion satellite, Puisseguin. Gonzague also has 3 acres in Saint-Emilion (St. Sulpice de Faleyrens), and 2.5 acres in Lalande-de-Pomerol. He tends all four parcels with strict organic vineyard practices, and in 2010, began the Ecocert certification process.
