Over the centuries, a succession of aristocratic families have owned and maintained the Château de Fesles, gradually developing the vineyard. In the 19th century, the property was bought by a family of keen winemakers - the Boivin family.
For three generations the family overcame numerous challenges, including the dreaded phylloxera. They greatly contributed to the vineyard's growth, improving viticulture and wine-making techniques and developing sales. In 1991 the property was completely refurbished at the request of its then owner, Mr Gaston Lenotre.
A thousand years after the château was first built, the Helfrich family - owners of the 50-hectare estate since 2008 - continue to work hard to get the best from this terroir.
