Mr Benoît LAVILLE, currently in charge of LAVILLE vineyards, comes from an old family that has been working in wine since 1510. With an inimitable combination of love, passion and perseverance, he vinifies, ages and commercialises :

Total production is 60.000 cases, of which 70% are exported to 35 different countries.
The cellars adjoining the vineyards were designed for the sole purpose of ensuring the quality of the finished product. All the vats are in stainless steel vats under permanent temperature. The barrel cellars are installed on each individual estate. All these facilities are used in line with the longest-standing Bordeaux traditions and benefit from the latest state-of-the art technology.
One of the specific features of LAVILLE vineyards is undoubtedly the quality of the terroirs, which is the result of the work of several generations. It can today be said that not all the great terroirs of the Bordeaux region were discovered in 1855. Château Lacombe has been the proof of that for many years.
All these crus produce wines under the appellations of Bordeaux Red, Bordeaux White, and Bordeaux Haut-Benauge, one of the oldest controlled appellation of origin, of which Château Lacombe and Gabrielle de Château Lacombe, an exceptional wine, rare, because only around 2 400 bottles are made per year.
There is no equivalent in Bordeaux.
Only the Romanée-Conti works in the same spirit.
