Carreau Familly

Carreau Familly

The Carreau family, now in their 7th generation are, since 1832, owners of Chateau L’ Escadre. The chateau is comprised of 60 Hectares and is located on the hillsides overlooking the Gironde river, in the heart of the “Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux” appellation.

The family motto is to respect and adhere to proven traditional ways in producing great wines while continuously seeking to improve one’s knowledge and applying improved techniques where warranted. The two family members now running the estate have prepared themselves well and in accordance with the family motto. Sebastien Carreau is in charge of wine making. He studied in Bordeaux all the while training at several reputed local chateaux. After completing his studies he went to work in Spain with Jacques & François Lurton and later in Argentina with Michel Rolland, the famous “Flying Winemaker”. Nicolas Carreau is in charge of managing the property and marketing. He studied Agronomy in Angers and received a Master of Vine and Wine degree in Valencia (Spain) before completing his MBA studies back in Bordeaux.

The chateau produces four wines; the white Chateau L’Escadre Blanc Sec, and three red wines, Chateau L’ Escadre Tradition, Chateau L’ Ecadre Grande Reserve and the Chateau L’ Escadre Major. The hillsides overlooking the Gironde are all south-southwest oriented. Five grape varieties are grown, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, and Semillon.
