Acquired in 1935 this estate borders the sea, not far from Fort de Brganon (the French Presidents summer retreat) in the Ctes de Provence appellation, and covers 170 hectares, of which 47 are planted to vines. Again, the land was entirely remodelled and replanted in the 1930s, to create this distinctive vineyard blessed with seaside atmosphere and a micro-climate permeated with sea-spray.
