Modern Built Winery with a Sustainable Future

In a little over 20 years the Delacour – first Huge, then brother Bruno– transformed this estate into the winery with a modern efficient vineyard that is located on the edge of the charming town of Saint-Émilion. In fact, it has a healthy respect for the past and a firm commitment to a sustainable future. Previously known as Château La Rouchonne, the estate comprises the charming nineteenth-century mansion and 10 hectares of vineyards. The family also owns the Clos de Templiers, one-and-a-half hectares of production in the Lalande de Pomerol appellation. Château Delacour is named as a tribute to the time of the Crusades when the Templars made a stop through the region.

Complex and Unique Wines made from Merlot and Cabernet

Although the family acquired an established winery with its vineyard, the story has it that the previous owner contributed his grapes to the nearby cooperative for wine production. Key features of production are the reintroduction of natural predators and the ambition to eventually become pesticide-free. The growing area of the winery comprises 10 plots which are each distinctive. Not only in terms of the different permutations of terroir but also grape variety and vine age, micro-climate, and position. This means that despite the dominance of Merlot at 90% (the other variety grown is Cabernet Franc) final blends are complex and a unique reflection of the location.
