Terroir & vineyards
Château Valoussière is one of the historical estates of the Jeanjean family, acquired in 1936. The cuvée « De père en Filles » is a tribute to the Jeanjean history and value. This wine was Bernard Jeanjean’s deepest wish to create a wine that would definitely have a part of the soul and spirit of the family house.
