Inscribed in the history of France...


Marguerite Elie Guadet

born in Saint-Émilion on July 20, 1755,


When the French Revolution broke out in 1789, Élie Guadet, from a family of Girondin magistrates, had already acquired a solid reputation as a litigant in Bordeaux. Appointed administrator of the department of Gironde in 1790 then president of the criminal court of Bordeaux, he was elected the same year deputy of Gironde in the Legislative Assembly.

With Gensonné and Vergniaud, he will be one of the founders of the political group of the Girondins. He presided over the National Assembly from January 22 to February 5, 1792 and chaired the National Convention from October 18 to November 1, 1792.

Pursued during the French Revolution, he found refuge in the cellars running under the properties and was guillotined along with his family in 1794. 

Later the property will bear his name.

Having a good idea of the world of wine and knowing what he wanted, he naturally turned to Biodynamics. This practice is the most serious and the most advanced in respect of the vine and in respect of its biotope as well as in highlighting the terroir.
