Château Puy-Razac

A family history

When my grandfather Guy Thoilliez - then régisseur (vineyard manager) at Château Monbousquet - succeeded his father at the family winery, he didn't want to create a product meant to stand in the company of the world's finest, but rather worked hard to craft a wine of which he could be proud, worth sharing with his family and friends.

And since I have taken over from him in 1997, I have tirelessly tried to live up to his legacy and I have entered a compromiseless search for the purest quality, through the highest respect of our terroir and its fruits.

'It is just about time and passion...'

Key facts and interesting information

Production

When everything goes right, we produce about 22,000 bottles of St. Emilion Grand Cru.

Harvest

The harvest usually takes place between 15 September (for the Merlot) and end of October (Cabernet Franc)... Really depends on the vintage!

No special 'cuvée'!

There is only one single quality of Château Puy-Razac. The art of the 'assemblage' (blending) is to choose what fits in and what doesn't.

'Puy-Razac' comes from my great-grandfather's free interpretation of the name of our area, South of St. Emilion ('Puits-Razat').
