Domain: Château Beau Site Haut Vignoble The history of this property begins in 1861. At that time, Pierre Braquessac had a prosperous business transporting coal, for which he used teams of oxen. He gradually invested his profits in the purchase of vines and the construction of a château in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. The family then began to make wine, and today it is Jean-Louis and Pierre Braquessac who manage the property.
Formed through a series of acquisitions over the generations, the estate now has 19 hectares spread over the entire Saint-Estèphe appellation. The resulting wine is thus a good reflection of the terroir. The traditional planting consists of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.
