Chateau de la Dauphine wines
Chateau de la Dauphine is one of the oldest estates in the Fronsac region, dating back to the late 1600s and with a stunning chateau that was built in 1750. The estate’s modern history began in 1985 when the property was bought by the Moueix family who also own Petrus and Château Trotanoy. It was later bought by the Halley family who founded the Carrefour supermarket chain and have invested some 10 million euros in modernising the estate.

The chateau is also one of the highest estates in Fronsac since it’s located on the top of the plateau with 53 hectares of vineyards planted on clay, limestone and sandy soils. In 2012 the estate converted to organic agriculture and they are currently experimenting with biodynamic practices as well. Thanks to the huge investment from the Halleys, this is one of the most advanced wineries on the Right Bank with state-of-the-art equipment.
