With 5 acres the 1835s, the vineyard was developed to 50 acres. Franck Bourceau fund, over time and acquisitions, the balance between traditional know-how and modernity.

The estate is composed today of 2 differents Chateaux divided on 2 appellations, Château La Gamaye (Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux) and Château Haut Mangaud (Côtes de Bourg) and propose subtle wines, all classified in AOC (Protected appellation).

An exceptional terroir…

Overhanging the Gironde river, Vineyard Bourceau is situated in the North of Bordeaux, on the villages of Berson and Saint Trojan, cradle of vineyards since the Middle Ages.

Thanks its situation, it benefits from all the assets of a nature with a generous terroir. It takes advantage of a microclimate which protects it from spring frosts and the clay-calcareous hillsides make an exceptional ground. Beside Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec grapes, the Black Merlot hold a special place.
