Coming from a long line of vintners, Edouard and Marcel Guilbaud founded Guilbaud Frères in 1927. They were firmly committed to the quality of their production.
The family’s third and fourth generations have perpetuated this tradition with the same seriousness. Romane, Pascal and Martine Guilbaud’s daughter, and Maxime Fernandez made their first harvest in 2018.
A spirit of innovation
Pascal Guilbaud pointed out that the term – “on lees” – is somewhat ambiguous. Indeed, “on lees”, implies that the wine has to be bottled before the 1st of December of the year of harvest. The term is associated with a young, slightly sparkling wine, with primary aromas. As Clos du Pont is bottled after this period it cannot bear this denomination. However, the maturing of Guilbaud on lees boosts the wine’s matter, structure and staying power: the estate actually sells wines from 2009 to 2017

The estate offers a range of appellations coming from the expertise of two professions – owner-winegrower and vintner-maturer, located in the 4 family estates Clos du Pont (2 ha in Mouzillon), Château de La Pingossière (20 ha property in Vallet), Domaine de la Moutonnière (a 8 ha vineyard in Mouzillon) and Clos de Beauregard (a 20 ha property in Mouzillon). Ideal location for the vines combined with the family’s in-depth knowledge of the land, have built Guilbaud Frères’ reputation as quality wine producers
