Chateau Jean Faux
Chateau Jean Faux is steeped in history, with roots dating back to the 18th Century. The Village of Sainte Radegonde is situated on the Southern slopes of the Dordogne facing Saint Emilion and is named after Ezéchiel du Mas, Comte de Mélac; child of Saint Radegonde and one of Louis XIV’s most famous generals. The modern age for the Chateau began in 2002 when the vineyard was purchased by Pascal Collotte. Pascal spent a great deal of time and money restoring it to its former glory, being careful to keep the traditional elements and character of the buildings while introducing modern technology. The estate achieved biodynamic certification in 2011. Chateau Jean Faux consists of 45 hectares of woods, orchards, rolling hills and 11.5 hectares of vineyards on clay and limestone soils. 80% of the land is planted to Merlot and 20% to Cabernet Franc with just two hectares reserved for white grapes; 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon.
