Chateau La Tessonniere Cru Artisan

Made by the 5th generation of winemakers, this claret is marked by fine blackcurrant and raspberry fruits, with an elegant touch of spice. Lively and balanced on the palate, with fine tannins, it has a deliciously rounded finish.

The Chevreux family originated from St. Aubin de Blaye and acquired the vineyards in Civrac-en-Médoc and in Bégadan at the beginning of the last century. At this time, Alphonse Chevreux established the Château la Tessonnière. He named the château after ‘Tessoun’ which formerly in Gascon dialect meant ‘badger burrow’ as the estate was full of them. In 1995, Cédric Colemyn, the great-grandson of founder Alphonse Chevreux and the fifth generation of winemakers took over the running of the Château. Having studied viticulture and oenology, he brought with him a dynamic vision and invested in the vineyards, resulting in the Cru Artisan designation.
