The winemaker

Château du Faure Haut Normand located in Saillans specialized in the Fronsac appellation. With the ambition to produce a Bordeaux wine that is both modern and classic, our small but beautifully formed vineyard is the very embodiment of the new wave of Fronsac vineyards dedicated to delivering wines that honour the traditions of the "Tuscany of Bordeaux". Our vineyard The Merlot vines of Château du Faure Haut Normand are on a gentle slope overlooking Pomerol and St Emilion. This magnificent setting frames an estate whose wines were once among the greatest in the region. The vineyard had been somewhat neglected until we bought it in 2018 and launched a comprehensive investment programme in the terroir and its vines. A new drainage and profiling of the land as well as a replanting programme to optimise quality are just the beginning. The goal - simply to make good wine. The vines are managed on a daily basis by Eric Soulas; a craftsman with over 30 years of experience and a true sense of "his" vines. From pruning throughout the year to hand-picking on the 4 plots and using the smallest crates possible to minimise bruising, the vines are treated like the pedigrees they are. We like to think that we know a little bit about winemaking but our knowledge is nothing compared to the Rolland family whom we are proud to call our winemakers. Led by Michel and Dany Rolland, we think these guys are the best of the breed and the great wine they produce for us is all the proof we need. A "quality above all" approach, from the first buds to the beginning of the vinification, through a stock of barrels never more than two years old, Château du Faure Haut Normand is reborn from its ashes and will once again become a marker of the great wines of Fronsac.
