Gonzague Maurice
 Back to producers by region list

Gonzague Maurice used to work in the wine business: 2 years in Sancerre and 4 years in Haut-Médoc. Then he did a specialized training course at Chevalier(Pessac Léognan), Château Poupille (Côtes de Castillon) and Domaine De l'Île Margaux. In 2005 he purchased an old cellar with 3.2 hectares of vines. Gonzague Maurice had to restore vines which were in poor condition. With more than 3000 vines to replant, the work was huge. The vat room was in a decent state and functional but with quite a lot of work too, he had to get rid of scales. Once set up, he wanted to expand his estate, which now is 7.5 hectares, in Montagne Saint Emillion, 5.5 hectares in Puisseguin Saint Emillion and 3 hectares in Cotes de Castillon.

Une Folie

An architectural "madness" has been built on the Château de Grandchamps: a small 18th century tower that officially served as a relay for the pilgrims of Compostela, but above all as a bachelor pad for the local lord! Wink at it can be found on the different labels of Gonzague Maurice wines.

Saint-Emilion "Satellites" Appelations

These are four Saint-Emilion satellites appellations located north of Saint-Émilion in the villages of Montagne, Saint-George, Puisseguin and Lussac. They obtained the right to use the name of “Saint-Émilion” just behind the name of their village on wine bottles since 1936. That’s how the following appellations were born:

  • Montagne Saint-Émilion
  • Saint-Georges Saint-Émilion
  • Puisseguin Saint-Émilion
  • Lussac Saint-Émilion

They produce robust and full-bodied red wines.
