Château Barbé


The present château was built after the French Revolution by the Dupeyrat family, who lived there for nearly a century. At the end of the 19th century, the vineyard was devastated by phylloxera and sold to our family, who renovated it and have kept it ever since.

Located on a plateau, Château Barbé has incredible sun exposure, meaning that grapes ripen earlier than those on the other Bayle Carreau properties.

This soil is extremely well-suited to winegrowing and the impeccablykept vineyard is a fine example of sustainable viticulture.


With a beautiful deep ruby-red color, Château Barbé has a fine nose of ripe fruit with overtones of liquorice and menthol. It is both powerful and velvety on the palate, with a long aftertaste.


A regular medal winner at wine competitions, it has a strong personality and a very good ageing potential. Younger vintages of Château Barbé pair well with game whereas older vintages shine with red meat, pork and cheeses. This wine is also surprisingly good with chocolate desserts
