A Winery Admiring the Sunsets of Dordogne

Dominating the Dordogne Valley and River, Chateau Destieux is located on one of the two highest Saint-Emilion peaks in Bordeaux. In French, Destieux means ‘Des Yeux,’ loosely referred to as ‘eyes.’ From the estate-owned vineyards, the tourists can enjoy a 360-degree view of the Dordogne River. The lush terroirs and ideal sunshine of Saint-Emilion offer a perfect arena for vine cultivation.

Chateau Destieux – A Unique Blend of Historical & Modern Era

Chateau Destieux, unlike many other wineries, is not named after its former owner or founder. The name is probably taken from the charming vistas that can be admired from the top of the slopes where the winery resides. The winery changed hands in the early 70s when it was sold to the Dauriac family. The first vintage was produced in 1976. Today, Christian Dauriac owns two more estates, Chateau La Clémence in Pomerol and Chateau Montlisse in Saint-Emilion.

Explore the Innovative Wine Cellar

In 1999, Christian introduced several state-of-the-art elements in the cellar. He modernized the winery with eight wooden vats of 45 hectoliters capacity each, along with French oak barrels of various sizes. The estate delivers top-class red wines made with Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé label and aged and refined under controlled temperature conditions.

Eight Parcels Producing the Excellent Grapes

The vineyard region consists of numerous plots on which Merlot(70%), Cabernet Sauvignon(10%), and Cabernet Franc(20%) are cultivated, depending upon the soil type for each vine variety. Montlisse Grand Cru comprises seven hectares of vineyards, whereas La Clémence has 2.8 hectares. Handpicking during the harvesting season is strongly encouraged at Chateau Destieux.
