Bordeaux Supérieur
Château Garreau

Located in the North West of the Ricaud property, rising up on a magnificent limestone-clay terroir, lies a beautiful small holding constructed towards the end of the 18th century, bearing the name Garreau, which is also the name of the parcel of vines. Alain Thiénot purchased Château de Ricaud in 1980, and Garreau had been part of the Ricaud estate since the beginning of the 20th century. In 2007, in a bid to enhance the outstanding quality potential of the vineyard, he launched one of the most impressive vineyard restructuring programmes to be undertaken in the Bordeaux region in the last decade. The specific objective for Château Garreau was clearly established to restore the property’s noble reputation, focusing on the quest for the best possible value and taste for money.
