From Abbey to Wine Estate

The Château Le Clos du Notaire’s aim to showcase the excellent terroir while producing the best vines and wines from them. The estate and the winery in Bourg-sur-Gironde north of Bordeaux city is managed by Amélie Osmond and Victor Mischler. It takes its name from Henri Coutin, a notary and son-in-law of the first owner Maître Menard. In the 14th century, however, there was an abbey in this location that during the time transformed into the winery. In 2018, wine production became fully certified organic at Château Le Clos du Notaire. They take measures to tackle soil erosion and use micro-organisms to help the soil structure. Biodiversity is important in their work and they even plant in their winery flowering fallow to attract insects. They are experimenting with biodynamics which involves considering the phases of the moon when working.

The Benefits of Regional Location and the Soil’s Influence on Vines

Le Clos du Notaire comes under the Côtes de Bourg appellation. The vines grow near the meeting point of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers. The closeness of the estuary to the south-facing slopes creates a microclimate with more sun than other appellations. This is important because it provides some protection against damage from storms and frost. A gentle breeze keeps the leaves dry and vines here rarely suffer disease.

Le Clos du Notaire Winery has Won several Awards

The winery produces three reds, one rosé and sparkling wine. The main grape varieties are Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. They also grow Sémillon for sparkling wine, a Crémant de Bordeaux. The wines receive excellent reviews and have done well in several competitions. The Château Le Clos du Notaire 2012 took gold at the Gilbert Gaillard and 2017 Tasting Contest.
