Château Guadet

The winery is located in the municipality Saint-Emilion in the area of the same name (Bordeaux). In the turmoil of the French Revolution, the then owner Marguerite-Elie Guadet (1758-1794) was executed on the scaffold, his portrait is now on the label. However, the estate remained family-owned and was only sold to the ancestors of the current owner Guy-Petrus Lignac in 1844. From 1844 to 2004 it was called Château Guadet-Saint-Julien. This sometimes led to confusion because it has nothing to do with the famous Médoc community of Saint-Julien. That is why it was renamed in 2005. The company, which was classified in 2006, was again classified as "Grand Cru Classé" in 2012. The vineyards cover six hectares and are planted with Merlot (75%) and Cabernet Franc (25%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 16 to 18 months in 50% new barriques.
