Jean-Baptiste Duquesne is a Bordeaux Pirate, shaking up the conventions of Bordeaux bureaucracy and challenging the status quo. After his selling his French cuisine recipe sharing website, he wrote the book "Bordeaux: Une Histoire de Cépages" which is a detailed history of 19th Century grape varieties in the Bordeaux.

Obsessed, he turned Château de Cazebonne into the largest library of ancestral grape varieties, such as: Mancin, Castets, Bouchalès, St-Macaire, Jurancon noir, Mérille, Béquignol, Pardotte, Gros Cabernet, Petit Péjac, Sauvignonasse, Penouille…. He has already planted 26 of the recognised historical varieties and aims to have all 57 planted by 2030...



Hand-harvested on 18/9 (Castets), 25/9 (Bouchalès, Saint-Macaire & Jurançon noir) and 30/9 (Mancin). Fermented as harvest-date batches, using natural yeasts, no addition of SO2 and then blended after fermentation. Aged in sandstone amphorae for 6 months, then 500L barriques for a further 6 months (second fill). Bottled in February 2022.
