Situated in the heart of Saint-Emilion’s prestigious vineyard slopes and a close neighbour of such famous estates as La Mondotte and Tertre Roteboeuf, Château Godeau was acquired by the Florisoone family at the end of 2012.
Heirs to a long wine-growing tradition and the former coowners of Château Calon Ségur, Albéric et Agnès Florisoone saw the potential in this lovely 7 hectare wine estate to express all the passion they feel for the land and for wine-growing. With the help of the team at the estate and with Stéphane Derenoncourt as the consultant winemaker, this young winemaking generation is today breathing new energy into its vineyard through careful precision work, painstaking effort and constant high standards allied to a dash of audacity.
This wine-growing philosophy combined with estate’s magnificent terroir makes Château Godeau one of the great heirs to Saint-Emilion’s wine heritage
