Château La Plaige Bordeaux

Château La Plaige sits on a hillside overlooking the river Dordogne on the eastern edge of the Bordeaux appellation. The combination of clay and limestone in the soil means that the owner Frédéric Naud can make a wine that is powerful and elegant at the same time. Since 2000, Frédéric Naud and his wife Lise have been managing the vineyard with passion and respect for the family’s winemaking tradition, established by the Naud family for five generations.
