The Gironde

MONDESIR-GAZIN is situated along the Gironde. The estuary regulates the climate, thereby limiting certain excessive weather conditions such as frost and hail.

The Vines

5 to 50 years old
Merlot is the chief variety, however an important proportion of the estate is also planted with Malbec, thereby reinforcing the special character of the location’s wines.


3 hectares, each with 7,400 rootstock
The latest plantation, representing 3 hectares, comprises 7,400 rootstock per hectare. This high density is an essential element in the production of top quality grapes.

The vats

a flattened shape
The extremely flattened shape of the vats offers a large contact surface between the marc and the juice. As a result, the future wine is gently extracted. Big open vats make it possible to carry out cap pumping (a technique pushing the marc into the juice).

The barrel storehouses

There is a cellar for the first year of ageing and one for the second year.
The estate favors a long maturation period (22 months), instead of using a lot of new oak (limited to a third of the barrels).
