Our Family Estate
The Château les Pâques is located in Braud and Saint Louis under the appellation 'Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux' on the right side of the Gironde estuary about 60 km north of Bordeaux. Our vines are planted on multiple plots with separated property terroirs. Sandy soils allow us to produce a very fruity and fresh dry white and gives a pleasant red fruit character on the reds. The clay and limestone based soils also allow us to produce more structured red wines with very good aging potential.
The Château les Pâques belongs to the Martin family after several generations. The viticulture in the family goes back to the nineteenth century. Like many at that time, it was a small structure based in mixed farming. The propriety notably changed towards the wine upon the arrival of Yvan and Claudette Martin, who increased the vineyard area of 12 ha. Theiy changed part of the vineyard in the 1970 planted with Ugni Blanc and Colombard, into red grapes such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1982, they began to produce the first bottles of 'AOC Bordeaux' and '1ères Côtes de Blaye'. Upon arrival on the exploitation of Bruno and Marie-Cécile Martin, they continued the transformation of the vineyard, planting the entire vineyard with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc and thus, building a winery after that. At that time, the vineyard covered 22 ha.
In the last recent years their son Bruno settled down and, additionally, Bruno and Marie-Cécile bought 10 hectares of vines to achieve today an area of 32 ha.
