Producer Profile; The story of the Mouty estate starts in 1923 at the Château du Barry… Donat Mouty, in love with the culture of the Saint-Emilion’s wine, decide to get the Château du Barry.
Later and with the same passion, his son Noel Mouty takes over and goes on developping the field.
In 1973, Daniel Mouty with his wife Francoise come to the estate. They bring new life into the property management, modernizing winemaking techniques while preserving the identity of each wine.
In 1982, the Château Tour Renaissance, from Françoise Mouty’s family, come to enlarge the domain. The range then expand with the Château Rambaud and the Extrait de Rambaud, from one of the best part of the Bordeaux’s appellation.
Accessing a dream, they acquire two vineyards on the prestigious Pomerol appellation. The Château Grand Beauséjour and the Cuvée St. André are then added to the Mouty Estate.
Their children have now joined to sustain a family passion born 90 years ago, and are now the managers of the Vineyards. Sabine, a woman of action who is passionate about human and Terroir values, opens a Gîte and bed and breakfast in the vineyards of Domaine des Grands Ormes, and plans many other projects to come... Bertrand, who is also musician and composer, has created new "Cuvées" and has the will to drive the expression of the Vineyards further and further.
Aware that sustainable farming has always been practiced in the family, they together start to move the whole Vineyards to the organic label AB in 2016.
