Bordeaux is the largest vineyard for appellation wines in the whole of France. Situated in the South West near the Atlantic, it is crossed by the rivers Garonne and Dordogne and enjoys a temperate maritime climate. The richness, the quality and the diversity of its wines derive from the particular character of the terroirs, the experience of the winegrowers and the art of blending. The tide, which flows up both of the region's rivers, brings very specific characteristics to the wines. With its huge size, Bordeaux reds offer an infinite palette of flavours and combine their qualities in myriad different ways.

Château Chaubinet, located close to the town of Espiet, has been in the Fossat family for several generations. Espiet was until quite recently an industrial town, with a cement works. The area has a rich history, notably with two mills dating from the 14th century. Today brothers Pierre and Jean-Michel Fossat are in charge of the estate.
