Chateau Coudert-Mauvezin

HISTORY

The Coudert vineyards have their roots at Château Coudert-Mauvezin! It is in fact on the place called Mauvezin that in 1865 the first vines were planted by the Bergeon family. Mr. Bergeon and his son-in-law Jean Baudou will produce the first wines then only in white.
