The Garde family has been firmly in charge of this property since the beginning of the 20th century. The generations have succeeded each other over the years, each one ensuring that the vineyard always benefits from the best care, so that the wines produced can always go towards excellence.
Result: a range of wines with a certain personality, all of which can claim to reflect their terroir.
Back in detail on a true family history … gathered around the wine with love and respect.
The vineyard of Lalande de Pomerol is as old as that of its neighbor Pomerol – the two appellation areas are separated by a river: the Barbanne – and was created in the 12th century by the Hospitallers of Saint-Jean. 8 December 1936, it covers about 1200 hectares and encompasses the former Néac appellation, which disappeared in the 1970s.
Château Haut-Goujon and its vineyards are located some forty kilometers from Bordeaux, 3 km north of Pomerol and 12 kms from Saint-Emilion, more precisely along the D1089 departmental road, in the direction of Périgueux, at the place called Goujon.
The AOC Montagne Saint-Emilion is one of the divisions of the Saint-Emilion appellation (also called “satellites”) and counts approximately 1600 hectares. Created in 1922, it will become AOC in 1936. The production area extends over the commune of Montagne and the neighboring hamlets Parsac and Saint-Georges.
The vineyard has been present in the Bordeaux region since antiquity. But it was only in the Middle Ages that the vineyard extended to Libournais and it was not until the 19th century that the wines of this region began to occupy a notable place in the Bordeaux wine production.
Château Haut-Goujon is a responsible and committed partner for sustainable development, and has become a member of the first association for the Bordeaux environmental SME (CERTIFIED ISO 14001).
