About the Winery

The Despagne family has a history in Bordeaux which spans 250 years. Today, Vignobles Despagne is responsible for six properties spanning 300 hectares and is known for taking more care of its vines than some classed growths.

The family shines like a beacon in Entre-Deux-Mers. In 1990, it acquired Château Bel-Air Perponcher here, and has developed as high a reputation for its whites as its reds. The vines, which are immaculately tended, comprise Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle for the whites and Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for the reds and rosé. Vines have been cultivated organically since 2008.

The property is run by Basaline Despagne. The talented Joël Elissalde has been the oenologist since 1987. His wines are a consistent hit with the critics.
