"In the heart of the Baron’s boundaries sits the Sheriff’s Wood: Les Bois Senechaux. This plot is crucial to the success of one of the oldest vineyards in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, so much so that it lends the property its name: Domaine des Senechaux. With a history dating back to the fourteenth century the property can be found in its current landscape in the 1950s, tended by the Raynaud family. Today’s custodians, with thriving vineyards in Bordeaux, the Cazes family came to Domaine des Senechaux with a wealth of expertise and the drive to make a wine replete with the characteristics of the region.
With Bernard Tranchecoste, who they entrust with the daily running of the land, they restored the vineyards to their former glory and modernised the estate. Since 2018, a new partnership with the Pradon family who became co-owners, has injected a new dynamic to the estate."
