Château Chauvin

Over a span of more than 100 years, four generations have worked with a single passion : the wine of Château Chauvin, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé. Back in 1891, it belonged to Victor Ondet. He ran the property with great rigour and meticulous care and brought a new era of prosperity to the estate.
His son, Georges, took over in 1911, adopting the same high standards of wine growing. In 1932, Henri, his grandson, cemented Château Chauvin’s reputation among the top wines, by leading the property to a successful application for the first Saint-Emilion classification in 1954. Marie-France Février and Béatrice Ondet, Henri’s daughters, continue the family’s passionate commitment, combining tradition with modernity.

In April 2014, Château Chauvin has been bought by Sylvie Cazes, coproprietor with her family of Domaines Jean-Michel Cazes (Lynch-bages, Ormes de Pez, Domaine des Sénéchaux…) and owner of the restaurant Le Chapon Fin in Bordeaux and Bordeaux Saveurs, a wine tour agency. With the help of the team in place at the chateau she wishes to continue the good work done by the Ondet family over the years and give Chauvin all the means to succeed in writing this new page of its history.
