Château Tessendey

The history of the d’Arfeuille family, who have lived in the Libourne area since the 18th century, goes hand in hand with that of wine growing along the Right Bank.

Château Tessendey has belonged to the d’Arfeuille family since 1972, when an extensive renovation project was launched for the entire vineyard. The winery was overhauled in 2000.

Arnaud d’Arfeuille has managed the estate since 2010. He strives to make ‘haute couture’ style wines from just under 6 hectares of vines enjoying a perfect aspect along the appellation’s sunny hillsides.

Arnaud also manages his uncle’s property in Saint-Emilion, Château La Serre.

Testimonial:

“Stirring this sleepy wine estate is a long, painstaking process. The same care and attention and techniques used at La Serre, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé, are lavished on Tessendey. Both properties have very similar soils and I run them along the same lines; the same winemaker looks after both estates.

Rolling out a marketing strategy for Château Tessendey has undeniably been boosted by my educational background (school of commerce followed by a master’s degree in gourmet foods, wines and spirits at Sup de Goût, Paris, and then the obligatory wine course at ENITA Bordeaux) and my work experience in the luxury products industry, first at Fauchon then Ricard.”

Distinguishing features:

The d’Arfeuille family has a tradition of beautifully-kept gardens and the present-day château boasts a magnificent garden which pays tribute to Arnaud’s mother who was a passionate gardening enthusiast.

The 2012 vintage sports a new label.
