Until 1789 (the onset of the French Revolution) the Domaine of Bousquette belonged to the Abbey of Fontcaude. After the Revolution and the expropriation of the Church properties it was then acquired by Sieur Moustelou de Cessenon. He was the first of a long succession of wine-makers. The family Fabre-Ginoulhac owned the property until 1996; but already in 1972 they began to follow the principles of the "Nature and Progress" approach to vine cultivation. Since then the Domaine has been certified by Ecocert as a "biological culture" vineyard, using neither chemical fertilizers, nor weed-killers or pesticides. In 1996, Eric and Isabelle Perret, a Swiss couple, fell in love with the area and the vineyard and purchased it. They too were totally convinced of the great value of biological farming and since they took over Château Bousquette, they have continually restructured and improved all aspects of the property - always aiming at producing even better biologically grown wines.

  • Château Bousquette Saint-Chinian 2005

    Snoothrank:

    "It's a perfectly proportioned wine that takes an appellation (St. Chinian) to its full potential. Oak aged for 1 year. Brilliant garnet color, deep blackberry aroma. Loaded with black cherry and cassis-like fruit. Round & harmonious, it is utterly satisfying from start to finish. Drink now or age up to 10 yrs." Read More
