This former home where Jean Galmot (journalist and adventurer from Montpazier, elected MP for Guyana in 1919) stayed, was bought from his wife by Pierre and Micheline Massé in 1953.
The Château, whose construction dates from the XIXth century, is entirely built of ashlar.
Two wings serving as cellars and barn form a central courtyard, it is in the center of an area of 27 hectares.
A passionate fruit grower, Pierre Massé planted apple, pear and plum orchards there.
Vines only occupied a small part on the estate until the arrival of Francis in the 1980s,
when he started to convert the orchards into vines, with the last apple orchards uprooted in 2013.
Installed on loamy soils, the Château Queyssard vineyard is planted with Sauvignon blanc and Sémillon for white wines and Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for red and rosé wines.
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
Harvested at their maximum aromatic potential, the grapes are then vinified at low temperature to reveal all that potential. The pumping over is frequent at the start of fermentation, then slower in the second stage to gradually extract the tannins to obtain the perfect balance between fresh fruit and suppleness.
Garnet in color, Château Queyssard has aromas of fresh red fruit such as blackcurrant. Highly oriented on the fruity character, it is a light and supple wine, characterized by a nice freshness.
As an aperitif or with traditional cuisine it is a young wine to drink.
CHATEAU QUEYSSARD Cuvée Dorianne
100% Sauvignon Blanc
In 2012, our family grew with the arrival of Dorianne, the 5th generation of the family, and the arrival of Nicolas on the vineyard. This cuvée produced by Nicolas gives a new impetus for Château Queyssard. 100% Sauvignon blanc and harvested slightly overripe, this cuvée is vinified in 300 litre oak barrels.
Aging lasts for a few months to reach optimal smoothness.
The color is pale gold with sparkling reflections, the nose is complex, between notes of vanilla and exotic fruits. The attack on the palate is supple and smooth.
Complex and aromatic, the Cuvée Dorianne can be aged in the bottle for a few years or be consumed young. Rich and concentrated, it is a wine to be enjoyed as an aperitif, or with white meats or cheeses.
Entre Deux Mers
95% Sauvignon Blanc 5% Semillon
Located between the Dordogne and Garonne rivers, the Entre-deux-Mers vineyard is renouned for its production of white wines. The harvest is carried out at daybreak to benefit from the coolness of the fruit, followed by a phase of skin maceration at low temperature, which allows the aromas of Sauvignon and Semillon to be concentrated.
The grapes are then pressed and the alcoholic fermentation starts slowly. The aging is very short with the bottling carried out in the Spring following the harvest.
The colour is pale yellow with green reflections, the aroma is, typical of Sauvignon Blanc, with the intense mixing floral and citrus notes. On the palate, the attack is fleshy, the evolution is lively and invigorating.
To be enjoyed with seafood as its freshness and aromatic expression give simplicity and relaxation.
Only a few Bordeaux rosés are made with the Merlot grapes. We wanted to innovate with this choice of grape to develop this wine.
With a light color close to the rose petal, the aroma benefits from a beautiful intensity of citrus and passion fruit. The tangy flavors give a very good balance.
This rosé wine enhances all your moments of relaxation and conviviality with its freshness.
Clairet is one of the oldest wines we produce. This historic, Bordeaux-specific vintage is halfway between a light red wine and a rosé wine.
The vinification begins with a maceration phase which lasts approximately 48 hours. During this time, the extraction of the dyestuffs is light.
Once the pale colour is obtained, a racking allows us to start the fermentation. As with the production of white and rosé wines, this takes place in the liquid phase. The aging is also very short and the wine is bottled in Spring.
Clairet can be kept for a few years. It will accompany your grills and summer meals.
