ABOUT THE CHÂTEAU


Created in 1770, the Château Chumbrun which has been called Chateau Moncet since 1770 is the oldest vineyard and bears the name of the Général de Moncets who bought it in 1872. Repurchased many years later in 2012 by a French family-owned company, the vines and cellars have since been fully renovated and rehabilitated in order to sustain the estate and thus integrate into it a second chateau, Chateau Chambrun.
