Created in 1983, the Château Haut Brisey is managed by Corine and Christian Denis. The house's membership in the "crus artisans" family, a new 2018 classification from the 2017 vintage, has marked the history of its wines formerly classified as crus bourgeois.
Exceptional wines to keep
The vineyard extends over an area of 10 ha. Its soil is characterized by Quaternary gravel mixed with a thin layer of clay and limestone. The grape variety is made up of Cabernet (70%) and Merlot (30%). Thanks to the climate of the region, the grapes can reach a greater maturity, allowing to obtain excellent wines of guard.

Château La Hourcade
In 1940, Mr Cecchini fell in love with the Médoc and a pretty Pauillac. Together they founded a family as well as Château La Hourcade. In the shade of the grands crus, two of their sons took over to produce a wine typical of this secular land. Since 1968, this know-how has therefore been transmitted from the peasant lands of this former Diguayre.
Anecdotes from the estate
"The friendships formed between the rows of vines leave memories of childhood, of laughter and of sharing. A wine will never be, in our opinion, the product of a man, a name or a brand but the fruit of the work of those who get up every morning to prune, hack or prune the vines. For all this, this wine is also theirs ”.
"In the town, the Diguayres stele wants to honor the generations who, for 130 years worked and fixed the coastline to defend their land from the assaults of the ocean. My grandfather was one of those immigrant workers. Many years later his son became mayor of the town while I returned from Bordeaux to learn how to give wine these reflections of tradition ”.Read more
