Château Jean Faure

The winery is located in Saint-Émilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux) right next to the Château Cheval Blanc. It was founded in the late 18th century. Among others, it was owned by Madame Loubat or her heirs, who formerly owned Château Pétrus. The completely run-down estate was bought in 2004 by Olivier Decelle, who made major investments in changes to the vineyard and cellar and hired the well-known consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt (*1963). Among other things, the soil was reinforced with rocks and drainage channels were built. Instead of tractors, horses are now used. The renovation was completed in 2008
