When the Family Reclus moved to the Château Pichon Bellevue in 1880, they cultivated 2 hectares of lands in polyculture (mixed cropping).
Since then, the estate has continued to expand and evolve to adapt to commercial and technological developments. First, they sold the wine directly from the barrels on the Place De Bordeaux, then, in 1982 the family turned to bottling directly at the estate.
Nowadays, Laurent continues the work of his parents, Chistiane and Daniel Reclus, paying particular attention to the 50 hectares vines in a traditional way with family values, while bringing a touch of modernity.
His work’s philosophy has always been focused on preventive rather than curative reasoning, which allows us to apply a «reasoned» agriculture based on constant monitoring of rainfall.
Terroir & Vinification
It’s on the left bank of the Dordogne, South-Weast of Libourne, in a relatively small plot of land that lies the entire vineyard.
It’s plots occupy beautiful gravelly cults of old alluvial terraces of the Dordogne.
Its geographical area extends to the commune of Vayres and the plateau of Arveyres, an area of about 700 hectares on which work about thirty winegrowers. It is therefore by the richness of its terroir and by the municipality that welcomes it that the Appellation naturally inherits its name: «Graves de Vayres».
