Exem Bordeaux 2010

Exem Bordeaux 750ml 2010   
Sku: 1759975*

Exem Bordeaux is 100% estate produced in Lestiac-sur-Garonne, little village 15km South East from Bordeaux along the right bank of the Garonne river, by the Gonfrier family. Nowadays, Eric Gonfrier and his brother Philippe are running this 400ha large private estate, but the story of the family began in the sixties. Gonfrier family has lived in Algeria from the 19thcentury until the independence in 1962. Eric’s father was a wine grower there, and had developed at that time a very big Domaine. In 1962, he was forced to come back to France and he lost everything his family had built over the years in Northern Africa. But despite this, and with a tremendous energy that characterize that family, he bought a little Domaine in Lestiac-sur-Garonne, and start a new story. He has been growing apples and vineyards until his two sons took over. By passion, the two bros decided to develop vineyards exclusively, and have succeeded incredibly well. Together, they own 400ha of vineyards, and have contracts with other growers to complete the range. Philippe Gonfrier is in charge of the viticulture, and Eric is the winemaker and the salesman. Their vineyards are located along the Southeastern edge of the “Entre-Deux-Mers” region, but contained within in the Premieres Cotes de Bordeaux appellation. The vineyard management is sustainable.
