Just a stone’s throw from the port of Libourne, the vineyard was more renowned during the 18th century than its prestigious neighbors Pomerol and Saint-Emilion. The chateau’s history began in 1953 with the Roux family. Later on it was acquired in 2005, by Dutch entrepreneur, Philip de Haseth-Möller, a great lover of wine. More recently, LFP Grands Vignobles de France purchased Château Vrai Canon Bouché in March 2014. The new owners have maintained the existing team and are continuing with the good work done so far.
