Château Trianon

Château Trianon was created at the end of the 17th century by the great influential figures of Libourne and Saint-Emilion, in honour of the Royal Court and of the luxurious dwelling built in the grounds of the Versailles Palaceto, where the King of France liked so much to retire to.
In the 19th century, Trianon was a country retreat belonging to the Andrieu and Lecointre families surrounded by meadows and vines. Until 1952, only 4 hectares (not quite 10 acres) of vines were used to make wine. This was subsequently increased to 6.5 hectares (16 acres). The wine produced from this plot was already described in several wine guides at the time.

In 2000, the Lecointre family sought to sell the estate for personal reasons.
In 1999, having sold Château Cheval Blanc, which he co-owned, Dominique Hébrard was on the look-out for a winegrowing property in Saint-Emilion with potential that he could develop. He needed a new challenge and to re-establish his roots in Saint-Emilion.
Trianon was a chance of a lifetime.Since vintage 2001, Dominique Hébrard shaped, prepared, sculpted, chiselled and polished Trianon’s terroir and took the decisions needed to renovate the estate. Substantial investment was made in the vineyard, and winemaking facilities worthy of the quality of the fruit were built, including a high-tech winery and barrel cellar.

AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Two A.O.C. (Controlled name of origin) share the territory, Saint-Emilion and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. This region produces wines that are globally imitated but never equalled: Chateau Ausone, Chateau Petrus and Chateau Angelus to name but a few. Yet the historical recognition of wines from the right bank happened later than the Grave or Medoc. Even though wine has been produced since the time of the Roman conquest in the 11th century, the interest in this region only began during the construction of the bridge across the Dordogne in 1820. Everything here is different from other regions around Bordeaux: limestone soil, the climate has a slight maritime influence and strong temperature fluctuations, and the vast majority of grapes grown is Merlot. This gives the wine a bright and fruity roundness that makes them very accessible and pleasant in their early youth with an aging potential as important as the Grands Crus Classés Medoc from the best producers. Saint Emilion is perhaps the most accessible region to discover the Grands Vins de Bordeaux.  The “Grand Cru” appellation is characterized by the qualitative selection, regularly revised, an output limited to 40hl/ha and raising minimum 12 months.
