The DUBARD Crémant de Bordeaux is produced by Château Nardou owned by Florent and Florence Dubard since 1998. The château is located 10 kilometres North-East of Saint Emilion at Tayac in the heart of the Francs Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. Florent is originally from the the neighbouring Bergerac region where he was involved with his brother and sister in the running of the well-known Château Laulerie. Since 1998, Florent has made important investments to produce high quality wines. A new cellar was built and small concrete vats for a plot by plot approach were installed and stainless steel vats were added for the production of the Crémant. A bottling machine was also purchased as the new cellar also provides more room for storage. Since 2012 a new reception area with a tasting room is operational. Château Nardou has always been known to produce still red wines, but in 2009 Florent decided to produce a Crémant de Bordeaux (sparkling) rosé under the name DUBARD. Florent is now one of the few winemakers of the Crémant de Bordeaux appellation as they are only about 100 producers.

Florence and Florent also provide Bed & Breakfast stays and have 2 cottages that you can book. Your visit in the area will be memorable by the scenery and peacefulness of the location. Of course Florent will look after you for you to discover the wines of Château Nardou, its vineyard and the nearby forest. Don’t forget that the UNESCO village of Saint Emilion is only 10 kilometres away.
Château Nardou’s 15 ha are planted at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare. The vines have an average age of 35 years old and are mainly planted facing south on slopes enabling good drainage and plenty of sun exposure for the grapes to reach an excellent maturity. The terroir is clay-loam and limestone based.

The grapes varieties planted are classic for Bordeaux reds with the Merlot representing 70% of the vineyard then Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec each representing 10%. The vineyard is sustainably farmed to protect the environment and grass is grown between the rows to enable bio-diversity. Canopy management and green harvest are practiced to control the yields and improve the ripeness of the grapes.
