Jean-Baptiste Audy Jean-Baptiste Audy

Jean-Baptiste AUDY is a family-run company with a solid financial standing. Our century-old cellars on the Quai du Priourat contain several million bottles, and we can offer distributors around the world wines from all over Bordeaux that have been stocked under perfect conditions.

Jean-Baptiste AUDY is known for creating, thanks to the technical team in its own vineyards, powerful partnerships with chateaux across Bordeaux. Through access to both a range of exclusively-distributed chateaux, classified growths, and our own family properties, our clients are guaranteed an extensive, high-quality range of wines.  History - In 1906, Jean-Baptiste AUDY settled in Libourne, and began a wine trading company along the banks of the Dordogne river, on the celebrated Quai du Priourat, well known for its many wine merchant offices. He distributed all the leading wines of Bordeaux, with a clear preference for the Right Bank, and most particularly the appellation of Pomerol.

The family became owners of several vineyards: Clos du Clocher, Courlat, Clinet, Bonalgue, La Cabanne, … and the company Jean-Baptiste AUDY took its place among the tightly knit circle of negociants trading on the Place de Bordeaux, well recognised for the quality of its export services, and its strong links with individual properties.

From 1991 to 2002, Pierre BOUROTTE, grandson of Jean-Baptiste AUDY,  ran the company. He has been joined since 2003 by his son Jean-Baptiste. This graduate of HEC worked for a number of years for luxury goods house Cartier in South America and in Europe. Surrounded by the expertise of  a long-serving team, he continues to develop the negociant house and the vineyards.

Chateau Peyruchet Passion over generations. Until today, and for tomorrow, our family has constantly measured its efforts to develop, and especially respect, the vineyard: our terroir.

It is during the last century that PEYRUCHET experienced a major development with the arrival of the 3rd generation, Henri and Suzette GILLET (in the 50s to 80s). At that time, the vineyard matures and already the wines are honored.

Subsequently, Bernard and Martine (daughter of Henri and Suzette) QUEYRENS will invest heavily in their time and financially in the farm to beautify and build its reputation. Nothing is left to chance ; the family house is renovated to accommodate the future generation, the cellar is equipped with modern facilities to ensure the quality of the wine. The vineyard, too, continues to be carried forward, combining the necessary mechanization and manual labor.

Nowadays, the transmission of know-how is active, because by the will of Bernard and his Roman son, the GILLET QUEYRENS Vineyards perpetuate an ancestral tradition which has made the fame of the wines of BORDEAUX. This new generation, represented by Romain, brings a burst of modernism, authenticity and commitment. Several goals are very important for the rest of the story.

Respect for Heritage: We are AREA certified as part of an environmental certification.

The expression of the terroir: we want to create generous wines, while keeping the smoothness of those of our region.

The exchange of our culture: we want to continue to develop PEYRUCHET wines around friendly relations and hope to pass a remarkable message in our bottles.

The property of 30 hectares, approximately, consists of 2 large islets: a first on the heights of the appellation LOUPIAC, on clay-limestone soils and a second on the commune of OMET, always on the slopes exposed south-south west which are at the origin of our red wines, dry white, rosé and mellow.

The size of the vine is adapted to each parcel to extract the best of it. We have been cultivating soils for a long time, which makes the rooting of our vines very deep. We favor the reasoned fight on our exploitation. Many observations in the vineyard, allows us to significantly reduce phytosanitary products.

Also, the manual work of the vine, to accompany it throughout its period of growth, is for us an essential factor in the development of the best grapes.
