Winemaker

Union de producteurs de Saint-Emilion

Château de Bechaud is a family-run Bordeaux estate with an ideal location to the south-east of Saint-Emilion in Saint Laurent des Combes. On this terroir, the vines flourish on ancient sands and a sand-clay soil. The resulting wine is vivacious and fruity, characterized by roundness and fullness.
