Château Le Breuil Renaissance is located in Bégadan, one of Medoc’s most northerly hamlets. Bégadan is home to many of Medoc’s best chateaux. The Medoc peninsula is very narrow at the northern end and the vineyard’s proximity to the Gironde esturary and the Altantic Ocean, which is buffeted by pine forests, creates a very favorable climate for the Bordeaux grape varieities. Many ancient coins and even a statue have been found on the property indicating that it was once part of a Gallo-Roman village. The original part of the property known as “Les Bernedes” has been owned by the Bérard family since 1908 but in 1985 they purchased their neighbor, Chateau Le Bana, a property classified as a Cru Bourgeois in 1932. The property was renamed Le Breuil Renaissance and Philippe Berard began estate bottling his wine with the 1990 vintage.
