Chateau Biston Brillette

Chateau Biston Brillette was established in the beginning of 19th century. The chateau´s greatest time was about 1860 when the vineyards covered about 30 hectares. The phylloxera damaged the vineyards and the recovery took long time. It was most probably also caused by the fact that the chateau was may times sold. Michel Barbarin bought the estate in 1963 and started new history of the Chateau Biston Brillette.

Nowadays the vineyards cover 25 hectares and are about 18 years old on average.
