A well regarded 28ha property on the borders of St Georges-St Emilion owned by the Amart family since 1949, which it is looking out over her neighbours like Cheval Blanc, Vieux Chateau Certan and Chateau Petrus who are just over the Barbanne stream.

Château Ormes de Pez Saint-Estèphe Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel

Located in the village of Pez, whose name comes from the ancient French word meaning “peace”, the Château Ormes de Pez covers 40 hectares of vineyards. The château has been linked to the Cazes family for more than a century. Although Lynch-Bages is without a doubt the flagship of the Domaines Jean-Michel Cazes, Ormes de Pez belongs to the Medoc landscape since the 18th century. Purchased by Jean-Charles Cazes in the wake of the Second World War, the history of these two estates is closely linked.
The wines from Ormes de Pez are powerful yet characterised by their harmonious structure. They are indulgent, pleasurable and combine a smooth, fleshy texture with the distinctive elegance of a Saint-Estèphe.

Château Pibran Pauillac AOC

Pibran is an old Médoc name. Its highly reputed vineyard covers one of the finest outcrops of Pauillac.

Château Vieux Pourret Saint-Émilion Grand Cru AOC

Château Vieux Pourret is very well located on the Saint-Emilion plateau, on the locality called “Pourret”.
