Château Franc Grâce-Dieu

Franc Grâce-Dieu celebrated its renaissance in 2008 when it was acquired by businessman Daniel Truant. It produces a particularly agreeable Saint-Émilion.
Planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the vineyards are cultivated in an environmentally conscious manner and in accordance with holistic rules.
The name Grâce-Dieu (Grace of God) refers to a Cistercian monastery that once owned extensive lands near the small town of Saint-Émilion. In the 18th century these came into the possession of the influential Guadet family, which provided several mayors and gradually introduced quality viticulture. Over time their property was split up, and today there are several estates with the name Grâce Dieu – among them La Grâce Dieu, La Grâce-Dieu les Menuts and Franc Grâce-Dieu.
In 2008 businessman Daniel Truant's childhood dream came true: he bought Château Franc Grâce-Dieu and entrusted the management of the estate to his daughter-in-law Sylvie. The estate – which is only a stone's throw away from well-known top estates such as Figeac and Cheval Blanc – was fully refurbished, starting with the 12 hectares of vines, which grow partly in Saint-Émilion itself and partly in the neighbouring commune of Saint-Sulpice, and ending with the winery itself and the attractive estate building, which today contains bed-and-breakfast guest rooms and a tasting room.
Planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet franc, the vineyards are cultivated holistically and with environmental awareness. The vinification follows local tradition, but with the use of the most modern pressing equipment. The wine is bottled only after careful ageing in oak barriques for 12 to 14 months. A pleasure to drink when young, Franc Grâce-Dieu is a fruity, supple Saint-Émilion that can also be laid down for several years.
