For four generations, the vines of Château Frédignac
have been grown at the centre of a very particular
climate influenced by the Gironde estuary. In 1919,
Jean-Marie L’Amouller, Briton stopping in Blaye,
fell in love with a young Blayan lady. Thus begins
the history of Château Frédignac’s vines.
Following its evolution, Michael L’Amouller left the
wine cooperative of Cars in 1984 to produce the
first Château Frédignac vintage with the appellation
“First Côtes de Blaye”.
In 2012, almost 100 years after the first vines were
planted, the operation is taken over by Vincent and
Ludivine, both of whom had diplomas in environmental
science. They slowly transform the plantation, but
retained the values that contributed to the success
of Château Frédignac and its wine as an AOC Blaye
Côtes de Bordeaux – respect for the land in the
production of an authentic product.
Anchored in the tradition of Blaye wines, our
terroir, in harmony with our savoir-faire, produces
wine with powerful and balanced tannins.
In 2010, the conversion to biological agriculture
was a new step, abolishing all use of synthetic
chemical products, especially phytosanitary
treatments. After 3 years of conversion, the 2014
vintage was marked by the production of our first
certifiably 100% Bio wine.
