Located on the site of a former 14th century abbey, the estate was already mentioned in FERET’s 1874 edition of its wine directory as second cru bourgeois and first cru artisan.


Originally owned by Maître MENARD, the estate was later passed on to his son-in-law Henri COUTIN, notary public in Jonzac, and it soon became known as Clos du Notaire. In 1974, Henry COUTIN’s son Jacques handed over the reins to Roland et Sylvette CHARBONNIER, who turned the Château into what it is now. After falling in love with the estate, Amélie OSMOND et Victor MISCHLER took over just in time for the 2015 harvest and they have been at the helm since. They were won over by the beauty of the terroir, the modern facilities of the winery, the amazing location and the micro-climate of the nearby Gironde estuary, and they decided to take this life-changing gamble… 


Their goal is to help this magnificent terroir thrive while preserving the tradition of quality in the vineyard and in the cellar.


Their philosophy revolves around protecting the environment, encouraging sustainable development, and above all living their passion…


By combining a rich terroir, meticulous vinification techniques and ageing in vats and new barrels, Clos du Notaire produces a wine with distinct oaky notes, perfectly balanced by a round, supple mouthfeel and powerful aromas. These qualities have earned the wines of Clos du Notaire many awards in Paris, Bordeaux and Mâcon, as well as rave reviews from wine magazines.
