Château Haut-Chaigneau

The winery is located in the municipality of Néac in the Lalande de Pomerol area (Bordeaux). The origin of the estate dates back to the beginning of the 18th century, the first owner being the royal notary André Garde. The part of the name "Chaigneau" is possibly derived from the Latin term "Castanea" (chestnut). Today it is owned by André Chatonnet, who also owns the Château Le Sergue. The vineyards cover 15 hectares and are planted with Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%). The long-lasting red wine is aged for 12 to 14 months in barriques that are one third new. The second wine is called "Château La Croix Chaigneau".
