The estate first appears in records dating back to the 17th century. Château Trianon was named in honor of the luxurious Versailles Palace. In the 19th century, Trianon was a country retreat surrounded by meadows and vines. Until 1952, less than 10 acres of vines were used to make wine. This was subsequently increased to 6.5 hectares (16 acres). Legendary winemaker & ex-owner of Cheval Blanc Dominique Herbrard purchased the estate and has dedicated his efforts to maximizing it’s potential.


Located in the municipality of Saint-Émilion, the estate covers 16 hectares (39,54 acres), of which 14,5 hectares (35,83 acres) are vines, featuring sandy clay soils over iron-bearing rock with red gravel on the surface of some plots. 


All the quality of a wine lies in the attention paid to the care taken from the earth to the glass. We adopt a sustainable viticulture combining respect for the environment and family know-how.


Harvesting: 100% manual, in crates.
Vinification: by plot in wooden, concrete and stainless steel vats. Gentle extraction with respect of temperature levels.
Malolactic fermentation : in new barrels and in vats.
