“My family has been farming our vineyards with passion and respect for both man and nature for six generations. We strive to reveal it and pass it on to future generations. Today, I have been handed the baton, I am this link. Driven by this same desire for innovation and tradition. ”Caroline Teycheney.
In 2015, Patrick Teycheney leaves the operational management of the Colisée Group to return to his first love: Bordeaux wine. His daughter decides to join him. She resigns from her position in the luxury-goods industry the same year. The family purchases two Saint-Emilion Grand Cru estates: Château Fleur de Lisse and Château L’Etampe. They add to the family’s historic estate, Château La Loubière in Montussan.
In 2018, Jade Vineyards expand. They purchase an organic Saint-Emilion Grand Cru estate. Fonfleurie is born from these plots. Jade Vineyards’ 67 acres now allow them to farm a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru biodynamically.
The Teycheney Family is converting all their vineyards to organic farming and HVE and SME environmental standards. The vineyard is also expanding through innovation and a complete winery modernization courtesy of Bordeaux architect Thomas Chlebowsky of the Goldfinger Agency.
Caroline and Patrick Teycheney have an ambitious project. They have acquired excellent plots and technical buildings in the Gaillard locality of Saint–Hippolyte from the Papon-Nouvel family. They now want to modernize the capacity and processes of the production facilities to fit the terroir, and to balance tradition and modernity in the renovation of a quality building. They wish to share their passion for wine and welcome other wine lovers. For this, they imagine dedicated tasting areas and a friendly boutique modeled on American family-run wineries. The Château Fleur de Lisse winery is to become the emblem of Vignobles Jade. It will centralize the production of our different Saint-Emilion wines.
