The first mention of “Jean Faure” as a wine farm.
A lease was issued by the Jean Faure estate for the farming of 10 hectares (24.7 acres). At this time, Jean Faure functioned like a real village, making its living from mixed farming, with vines making up 17 hectares (42 acres) by the 17th century. This document enables us to place Château Jean Faure among the oldest estates of Saint Emilion.
Château Jean Faure regained its place in the Saint-Emilion classification thanks to the efforts of the Decelle family. A new chapter in the history of the estate had begun.
Château Jean Faure gained organic farming certification. Grand Cru Classé status and eco-friendly viticulture thus go harmoniously hand in hand.
60% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot and 5% Malbec.
18 hectares (44 acres)
