Borderie Family

G e o g r a p h y

The family domain is situated on the municipality of Saint-Médard-de-Guizières, in the crossing of the meridian 0 of Greenwich and 45 ° North parallel line. Bordering of the area of Saint-Emilion, the culture of the vine is the same. Grounds are of sedimentary origin, with clays, grave and silt in the valley. On Lussac, the ground of the Chateau Les Combes is a mix of clay and limestone exclusively.

H i s t o r y

Situated on an ground very convenient to the culture of the vine, many facts of the history of France took place in a sector of some kilometers. Saint-Médard-de-Guizières is in the heart of a triangle Francs-  Castillon-Coutras  steeped  in  history.   At the beginning of the VIth century:  during the battle of Vouillé, a detachment of the Franque army of Clovis establishes his camp on a place the village of which names Francs.

Then in 1453, the battle of Castillon ended the One hundred years war and the links of Aquitaine with England.
