TOUTIGEAC is an very old locality, with visible traces which date back from the 12° century. At that time, the monks of St Gérard who came from the neighboring abbey, la Sauve Majeure, founded a small community, planted vines and built a church. Toutigeac was at that time a village with more than 200 inhabitants. The Cross with its unsophisticated sculpture of Christ dates back from that time.
An historical site, Château Toutigeac is located on a hill at the very heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers in its most hilly and picturesque part. It looks out over a magnificent panorama of vines, forests and fields with villages, Romanesque churches, manors and delightful houses… some people describe it as a little Tuscany.
The Mazeau family, generation after generation, has planned a high quality vineyard in order to produce well rounded, fruity and generous wines which have long been appreciated by a knowledgeable and faithful clientele in France and elsewhere.
Our wines are regularly rewarded at wine competitions, and since1973, we have been awarded more than fifty medals at the Concours Général Agricole in Paris, the Concours des Vins de Bordeaux, The Challenge International du Vin.
The Estate was purchased by Charles Mallet in 1928, at that time a wine merchant in Paris and Castillon la Bataille. His great, great grand-daughter, Oriane Mazeau, continues the tradition and follows the tradition as the fifth generation of the family to make wines at Château Toutigeac.
