Château Hugon is located at the top of the Pech hill, almost at the doors of Bergerac, it is a very small property, hardly 4 hectares. The Cousy family has cultivated its vines for many generations but the recent revival dates from the beginning of the nineties.
In 2007, Sébastien Cousy, still supported by his father Bernard, took over the vineyards, determined to make his family’s wine the best in the appellation. The reassessment and development of the vineyard’s processes from the vine to the cellar were very beneficial. Their Millésime 2009 is a case in point.
Here the fleshy and juicy merlot grape is completed by the solid cabernets and substantiated by a hint of Malbec. They are carefully harvested at the heart of the vineyard, and then matured in oak barrels for one year.
