History

Le nom "Tournefeuille"
   apparait sur les cartes,
     dès 1785..

In 2003 the Petit family added 3 hectares in Saint-Emilion. Château La Révérence located behing the village, on the high « plateau » going to Pomerol, this small vineyard is facing some very famous Grand Cru Classé. Its uniqueness lies in the presence of very old cabernet franc making  half of the total grape varieties  with aromatic complexity and density.

In 2004, we have done a new step to the prestigious appellation of  Pomerol : Château Lécuyer.

3 hectares forming the blend are distributed over beautiful land :

  • Clay-gravel plateau of Pomerol, near the church : the soil is richly concentrated in clay, giving the plant a constant moisture regime, resulting in generous wines and racy.
  • The bottom shelf of the village consists of a cover of sand on clay : this land offers fine and elegant wines.

A small modern winery was built there in 2000. This wine is identified throughout the refinement of Pomerol, for the complex aromas of merlot, the silky texture of its tannins and great length.
