History

Château Petit-Freylon is located in the small Aquitaine village of Saint-Genis-du-Bois, a tiny village boasting less than 100 inhabitants. The estate belonged to the Lagrange family for generations until 2011, when it was purchased by La Société PESA. Since that time, the new owners have invested heavily in the château’s wine-making facilities and have installed such improvements such as new tanks, barrels, and thermo-vinification systems. This attention to detail has earned the wines several medals at prestigious competitions, such as the Concours Agricolein Paris and the Concours de Bordeaux.

Terroir

The vineyard at Château Petit-Freylon covers 30 hectares (75 acres) of rich potential, 20 of which are within the Bordeaux Supérieur appellation. The soils are clay and limestone are well lined, giving way to high caliber wines. Growing on 30 year old vines, the Château produces a grand assortment of grape varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with average yields of 50 hectoliters per hectare.

Conservation

Since 2016, Château Petit-Freylon has been a part of the Bordeaux Environmental Management System Association in an effort to reduce our impact on the environment.

The estate is heavily invested in numerous conservational initiatives such as recycling waste, improving biodiversity, reworking vineyard management, efficient use of resources and counteracting all forms of pollution. Everyone in our team is notably involved in each step of this process; from the pruning of the vine to the final bottling of each vintage.

All our attempts to conserve the environment have allowed us to be certified at the highest level of the High Environmental Value (HVE Level 3), in addition to the ISO 14001 certification.
