The Doublet family have been making wines on this Estate since the late 1800’s. The Chateau is steeped in history and once belonged to the famous philosopher Baron de Montesquieu.
Now sheltering the third generation of the Doublet family, Bernard and Dominique have developed the vineyard in recent years with the idea of producing high quality Bordeaux and Entre-deux-Mers.
In 1987, in search of new flavours, they crossed the Garonne to invest in Beautiran in the Graves of the north. Château Tour de Calens was reborn. In 1996, their children Alexandre and Jean-Thomas joined the family business and added new momentum. This dynamic asserted itself all the more in 2009, when they crossed the river Dordogne for the terroir of Saint-Emilion and a vineyard named Château Saint-Ange. Today, bottles with “three doublets” (the heraldic name of the dragonfly) is represented on all of the family’s wine foils.
