The history of Château Vrai Canon Bouché begins in 1953 with the Roux family. Subsequently, there was much talk of the English presence in the south-west of France but there are also the Dutch, as Philip Haseth Moller, brilliant businessman who made a fortune in commercial real estate in Amsterdam . His passions for arts, antiques and good food have naturally pushed him towards fine wines. This is how he acquired Château Vrai Canon Bouché in 2005. He entrusted the management to Jean de Laitre, advised by the famous consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt. Together, they have raised the level of productions of the place to make the Château one of the names to follow the name Canon-Fronsac. In March 2014, LFP Grands Vignobles de France welcomed the Château Vrai Canon Bouché and kept the team in place to continue the very qualitative work already undertaken.
The vineyard of the Château Vrai Canon Bouché covers 12 hectares in one piece made of clay soils on limestone asteri. One of the peculiarities of the vines is that they are on an old quarry dug out over the centuries, with today more than 8 hectares of galleries. The grape variety is dominated by Merlot, which represents 3 quarters, followed by Cabernet Franc and Malbec. In vats and in the cellar, concrete and new wood are very present, to give birth to rich and fresh wines. Since 2005, most of the work has focused on the valorisation of the vineyard with viticulture hand-sewn and very respectful of the soil and the plant.
At the tasting, Château Vrai Canon Bouché keeps its freshness and fresh fruit every year.
