Château La Gordonne

Château La Gordonne is a unique property in Provence, which covers an adjoining area with about 330 hectares of vineyards planted on an exceptional schist amphitheater facing the sea which enjoys a special microclimate. In 1652 "La Gordonne" was definitively established. In 1663, "La Gordonne" was purchased with its bastide, vines and olive trees by the councilor Dedons, the count of Pierrefeu. In 1754, the Dedons family, who had since become the Marquis of Pierrefeu, still owned the property, but documents of a new owner, the Bishopric of Toulon, were found shortly before the French Revolution in 1789. In 1850, the castle and peripheral buildings have been completely renovated and the castle has sold its wines ever since. Château La Gordonne is now one of the flagships of Vranken Estates. The winters are not harsh and the summers are hot and dry, sometimes scorching, which means that the vines can absorb all the ardor of the Provencal sun, with 3000 hours of sunshine per year. The mistral, a dry and violent wind, plays an important role as it crosses the plantations, protecting the vines from diseases related to humidity. The vines are grown on a calcareous and clayey plain and on shale slopes. The soil has little humus and is permeable, shallow, stony and well drained, combining the ideal conditions for the vines to thrive. A wide range of vines typical of Provence are grown on the estate: we grow Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes. Château La Gordonne, today one of the main estates of Vranken Estates, now boasts new facilities for the production of high-performance wine with its champenois-style pneumatic presses. These can be used to select the "tête de cuvée" (or the best growths), created by Paul-François Vranken and which truly embodies the signature of Vranken Estates.
