Chateau Guibeau

Château Guibeau is perched on one of the highest points in Bordeaux, just north of the village of Saint Émilion.

The current estate is the product of a 19th century association of two neighboring vineyards, family owned and run then as now and is overlooking the Puisseguin St Emilion appellation which is dating back from 1936 and only allows production of red wines with a maximum yields of fifty hectoliters per hectare.

Philosophy

Brigitte and Eric Bourlon run those forty hectares vineyards of clay and limestone organically. Organic farming is rare in this area and it shows their commitment to the estate.

They are convinced that the quality of their wines is the direct result of the respect they have for the land that they love. They mainly grow Merlot, but also Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are thirty years old on average and produced medium-bodied, plums, cassis and dried herbs wines which doesn’t forsake complexity for softness.
