CHÂTEAU LA BASTIENNE

An exceptional terroir
The Château La Bastienne, classified Premier Grand Cru Montagne in 1928, before the appellation Montagne becomes Montagne-Saint-Emilion, has been acquired Pierre-Emmanuel's grandfather in 1945.

Located on the Southwest hillside of the plateau of Néac, close to Lalande-de-Pomerol, the vineyard of La Bastienne benefits from an exceptional soil, marls with clayey-silty texture, gently sloping which assures a natural drainage. The marly grounds are the best of the Bordeaux area to get great red wines, concentrated, fine and complex, with a long ageing potential.

Fourth generation of vine-grower, Pierre-Emmanuel Janoueix took over the family vineyard in 2000, with for ambition to perpetuate the quality and to prove that Montagne-Saint-Emilion can also be a great wine.

Some vines were pulled up and the missing stocks were planted with the most adapted vines from a local selection. So, on 17 ha of property, only 12,5 ha are planted. The yields were reduced by 15 to 20 %. The wine storehouse has totally been renewed and equipped in thermoregulation.

Thanks to all these efforts, the wine of the Château La Bastienne, former Premier Grand Cru Montagne, became again a reference of Saint-Emilion.

Company details

Since 1898
The story begins in 1898, when Jean Janoueix, great-grandfather of Pierre Emmanuel and inhabitant of the Corrèze (a rural department of the center of France), decides to go into the wine trade and sets up as wine merchant in Meymac-près-Bordeaux. At ease with the farmers, himself farmer, he decides to sell the wines to the farms of the Northwest of France, richer than those of the Corrèze.

A few years later, his four sons join him and in 1930, the family acquires its first vineyards in the Bordeaux area. In 1945, the sons decide to separate and François, one of Jean's sons, buys the Château La Bastienne thenclassified "Premier Grand Cru Montagne".

Two years later, Pierre, the elder son of François and father of Pierre-Emmanuel, begins his tours in Normandy to sell his father's wines as his grandfather used to do. The family continues to acquire vineyards around Saint-Emilion, among them the Château Grands Sillons Gabachot in Pomerol, bought by Pierre. It is during one of his tours in Normandy that Pierre meets his wife Antoinette. From then, he definitively lives in Normandy, leaves to his brother and sisters the care, among others, to run its properties and sells the family wines in Normandy. His son Pierre-Emmanuel borns in 1974 and grows up in Normandy.
