It was in 1840 that Laurent Cassy’s great-great-grandfather bought his first hectare of vines in the district of Morizès. Today Laurent and his wife Christelle are proud to represent the 5th generation of growers. Driven by a family doctrine: “Treat the vine well and it will repay you”, they soon invested in organic farming, and in 2014 bought Château Quillet, which is also organically-run.
Overlooking the Garonne valley, on the slopes of Morizès, Château Quillet certainly stands out with its red brick exterior. With a strong environmental agenda, the Cassys have sought the highest levels of recognition for their sustainable approach, and are AB-certified (organic farming), and part of the first group of wine SMEs in Bordeaux to be awarded ISO 14001 and the highest level of High Environmental Value (HVE3). Château Quillet is a benchmark in quality in Bordeaux, achieved in perfect harmony with the environment.
Southern slopes of the district of Morizès.
Very diverse with a succession of red gravel in the upper reaches, then sand, clay and limestone.
55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec.
