CHATEAU LE BERNAT : THE ESTATE
43 000 hl
Chateau Le Bernat
The history of Chateau Le Bernat is one of a union of truly passionate wine lovers with the search for a lifetime project and a property in the sleepy valley of Saint-Emilion.
Since the summer of 1999, Liliane and Pierre-Jean Le Roy have invested everything with their daughter Natalie to revive this 6-hectare terroir. Planted with Merlot vines that are up to 60 years old, as well as with Cabernet Sauvignon, the Château sits on the beautiful clay-limestone hillside of Puisseguin Saint-Emilion.
Today, Nathalie has naturally taken the reins of the estate with the same passion and energy as her parents.
The most eastern of the appellations surrounding Saint-Emilion, the Chateau is located on predominately clay-limestone soils punctuated with smalls areas of gravel.
Located in the middle of the valley of Saint-Emilion its 6 hectares of vineyards face south-southeast.
At a bend in the middle of the valley, you will discover our estate and our home; a "Girondine" of the seventeenth century...
My parents, like me, are very attached to this place.
A friend once told me, “There are some wines that exist that people compare to ‘secrets’, so selfishly, that one only wants to share them with a few select friends, for the friendship with they lend is only worthy of the their love of wine and the blessed terroirs...”
We are obviously not the only ones who can claim this compliment, as so many wonderful wine-growing areas exist throughout the world, but I found it pretty and I hope you will think about as you discover our wine...
Château Le Bernat, in Puisseguin Saint-Émilion, on the route du Champs des Boys, is a place of great sweetness, dare I say, almost ‘feminine”…
We love its breezes, colors, lights, aroma, softness, and its plush hillside...
As a rule t Chateau le Bernat, we offer you the best of nature. All of the passion that we have for our appellation of Puisseguin Saint-Emilion is reflected in our wines.
Simply, we want to offer our guests and our customers the best service, the finest wines for each tasting, a real experience and a wonderful shared moment.
