Our story of Chateau La Fleur Plaisance begins with the meeting of two wine enthusiasts. Stephane grew up at
Chateau La Fleur Plaisance which has been in his family for seven generations. I am not the daughter of winegrowers but I have had a love of wine from a very young age. Like Stephane, I decided that my passion would become my job and joined him in the adventure of Chateau La Fleur Plaisance. Located between Pomerol and Saint- Emilion, the geographical position on Montagne Saint-Emilion is a major asset: an exceptional geographical location “PARSAC”, creator of great wine!
Chateau La Fleur Plaisance extends over 12 hectares with benefits of a prestigious terroir; Parsac has a strong identity. We age wines with fairly powerful structures, easily recognizable. Chateau La Fleur Plaisance is a wine of « terroir » whose age of the vines and quality of the clay- limestone soil allow this wine to give its typicity, structure and quality of tannins. It is a beautiful representation of a « Montagne Saint-Emilion ».

Hello I am Alexia Eymas and I represent the 4th generation of women wine producers at Château Maison-Neuve It began with my great grand mother, then passed to my grand mother and then my mother refined our processes a little more, now I am running the vineyard enhancing it by adding my personal touches. After studying sociology, journalism and politics, I chose to return to the natural values of the land by favoring my adopted region of Aquitaine. My studies at ENITA in Bordeaux along with my apprenticeship at a property in Margaux for wine making then worked in a cooperative cellar to understand the multitude of terroirs that surround us.
My education and experience has allowed me to create my range of wines that bring new commercial opportunities. My focus is to bring out the best in what our terroir offers us by adapting it to the climatology to produce wines with a unique character for each vintage.
The cuvée Tradition is purple in color in its youth with aromas of fresh fruit. It stands out for its complexity and finesse on the palate, all in a toasted flavour. Ideal to match white and red meats, cheeses and gourmet dishes.

Hi my name is Malika and I represent the 6th generation of our families winegrowing. I have been attached to our estate since I was a little “wild child” but as I grew older and more mature I developed a determination and passion found in the values of the Alienor to succeed.
I age Lescaneaut wines for the sake of authenticity and naturalness. Certified organic since 2009, I have also been applying biodynamic principles at the estate since the end of 2020 to enhance my terroir and closely support the cycle of my vines.
The wines of Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux are gourmet and pleasant tasting wines. The uniqueness of Chateau Lescaneaut is that we have two types of complementary terroir, Clay on Limestone on our slopes and loamy-gravelly soils around the Chateau that overlooks the Dordogne River. Our Red wines are fine and elegant , with a beautiful freshness. This ensures them to blend and enhance the cooking of the « terroir » or more sophisticated cuisine. The aromas of red and black fruits mingle with the subtle woody notes. On the palate, the attack is supple with always a fine and delicate structure. “Our wine is Sun in a bottle”. open a Lescaneaut and you will feel a ray of sunshine”.
