Château de la Vieille Chapelle was founded in 2006, after much searching from founders Frédéric and Fabienne Mallier. They had a desire to only begin this adventure on the perfect vineyard in Bordeaux. The Estate consists of 21 hectares along the Dordogne river in a beautiful environment.

Located on the Fronsac district, Chateau de la Vieille Chapelle produces on 9 hectares between 35 to 45,000 bottles per year in AOC Bordeaux, AOC Bordeaux Supérieur, Vin de France.

In 2013, they completed their conversion to organic farming, then they became certified biodynamic in 2017. Currently, all harvesting is performed manually, with no additives, fining and filtration.

Château de la Vieille Chapelle Les Merlots de Baudet is a single-varietal Merlot. The Baudet name is taken from the original farmer who planted these Merlot vines back in 1940. Château de la Vieille Chapelle Les Merlots de Baudet is unfiltered, organic, biodynamic and with a low sulfite content. This is not the normal for Bordeaux. The lower intervention and natural process means that Château de la Vieille Chapelle Les Merlots de Baudet truly allows the grapes to speak for themselves.

The Château de la Vieille Chapelle Les Merlots de Baudet goes through fermentation in concrete, then two types of oak barrels, in order to add complexity. The Château de la Vieille Chapelle Les Merlots de Baudet has a mouthfeel that can only be compared to velvet. The Château de la Vieille Chapelle Les Merlots de Baudet will have notes of blackcurrant, plum, black cherry and hints of wild strawberry. A lovely fruit mouth and rich smooth finish
