Description

Located at the 45 ° parallel, Bordeaux enjoys a temperate climate. It is a very favorable climate for the vine with winters with rare strong frosts, wet springs, hot summers and particularly sunny autumns which allow the optimal ripening of the grapes. The Gironde is a sea inlet inland that softens the climate. Two major rivers, the Garonne and the Dordogne, with their many tributaries naturally satisfy the water needs of the vineyard. The proximity of the Atlantic Ocean and the influence of the Gulf Stream, warm currents from the Caribbean and along the Aquitaine coast, accentuate the temperate ocean climate.


History of the property 

The history of the Château de Bonhoste was born around 1895, when the BUSSIERE family arrived at "Bonhoste", locality of the commune of Saint-Jean de Blaignac, where the CHABERT family already resides since the end of the XVIIIth century. Over time, the two families continue to grow their terraced vineyards. It is Bernard FOURNIER, grandson of Mrs BUSSIERE, which brings together in 1977 the two properties. With the help of his wife Colette, they decided to develop this family patrimony, by discovering the fruit of the work of a whole generation. In 2005, Sylvaine and Yannick FOURNIER, daughter and son of Bernard and Colette, take up the torch. 


The vineyard 

With its 44 hectares, Château de Bonhoste stretches along the hills overlooking the Dordogne valley 45 km from Bordeaux and 6 km from Saint-Emilion. Its clay-limestone soil, with its harmonious grape variety, is 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 55% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon, 5% red. % of Muscadelle. Château de Bonhoste leads his vines in traditional cultivation mode and in reasoned competition, with selection and control of yields, optimizing maturation in order to better preserve during the breeding the authenticity and to develop a better expression of the intrinsic qualities of the soil. In summary a rigorous work based on the great Bordeaux wine tradition that ennobles aging in underground cellars of natural stone. 


Quality approach 

This is obvious: the quest for quality is part of the everyday life of the winemaker. The implementation of guarantees in terms of hygiene and sound dietary practices and traceability are essential today. Château de Bonhoste and Château La Moulière adhere to the Qualenvi organization, which is the certification process of the Vignerons Indépendants de France.

It thus undertakes to apply the requirements of the Qualenvi reference system on all of its activity: from viticulture to sales, including winemaking.


This is explained by :

  • The establishment of healthy eating practices, guarantees in terms of hygiene and total traceability of the vine to the consumer.Commitment on the authenticity and the signature of the wines. Any batch of bottles marketed, identified and controlled, translates the know-how of the estate in respect of the terroir.
  • The guarantee of the controlled management of the environment: taking into account and reducing environmental nuisances, an action plan to control and reduce environmental impacts


High environmental value 

Established since February 2012, environmental certification is a tool that contributes to the objectives of ecological and economic double performance of the agro-ecological project for France. It takes into account criteria relating to biodiversity, phytosanitary strategy, water management and fertilization.
