    • Ten minutes from Blaye and its world renowned citadelle (on the World Heritage UNESCO list), Château MONCONSEIL GAZIN is among the oldest wine buildings in the area.

      The estate is situated on one of the best sites on the limestone escarpment of Blaye - the hill above the village of Plassac.

      The proximity to the Gironde Estuary, clay/limestone soils, and free-draining, south-facing slopes all combine to make a beneficial microclimate for maturing their grapes.

      The combination of great terroir and meticulous winemaking produces wines of a consistently high quality year after year, recognized by a long track record of awards.

      The estate founded in 1894 is now run by Jean-Michel Baudet, a 5th generation winemaker, and his wife Françoise, who are deeply committed to the quality of their wines, as well as to the promotion of the wines in the region of Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux.



      You will start the visit of the family-owned estate in the Chateau courtyard with an introduction to the area, the estate and the family history. We will then visit the vineyards to learn more about the grape varieties, the viticulture practiced b the estate, and in particular, our commitment to sustainable viticulture (audited and certified by Terra Vitis). Thereafter we will tour the winery and cellar and finish in the tasting room.

      You will be able to taste the whole range of our wines : starting with our dry rosé, then our two dry white wines, our two red wines (Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux and Blaye denominations) and finishing with our "sweet" rosé.

    Knowledgeable, friendly and inviting host with delicious wines ranging from white to red, with oaked varieties as well. Lovely, relaxed place for a visit.

    Despite doing our usual (and not to be advised) trick of turning up without warning in the middle of a busy time, we were welcomed and had a good tasting of all of the wines in the range. They are very drinkable and of a very reasonable price - especially given that they are Bordeaux. Even though there were only two of us we were given a tour of the vines and gained some information about wine making that were new to us.
