Sauternes & Barsac
Grand Cru Classé en 1855
Vignobles de Terroirs
In the early 19th century, Monsieur Capdeville, the owner of Château Broustet, acquired the neighbouring estate, Château Nairac.

This is why it was referred to as “Broustet-Nairac” when it was ranked a second growth in the 1855 classification.

The Fournier family acquired Chateau Broustet in the late 19th century and set up a cooperage there. The model for the 225-litre barrique bordelaise, or Bordeaux barrel is said to have been created at Broustet, an explanation backed up by documents in the archives of the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce.

Located in Barsac, this magnificent property has belonged to Vignobles de Terroirs since 2010. The vineyard has two types of soil: clay-limestone and gravel.

At the end of summer, morning mists warmed by the sun are conducive to the early and slow development of noble rot. The pebbles and topazes scattered around the vineyard store the sun’s heat and release it at night, which is ideal for producing overripe grapes. Once botrytised, these are picked by hand in several waves. This results in an outstanding wine.
