Chateau Jean Faux is an estate with a lot of history in the region, Located not far from Cotes de Castillon, the property dates back to the 18th century. The modern age for Chateau Jean Faux begins in 2002, when the vineyard was purchased by Pascal Collotte. With its park like grounds, the property is quite large, in fact it occupies close to 45 hectares in total. The estate was in poor condition at the time of the purchase. In fact, only 1.5 hectares were in good enough condition to produce grapes that were suitable to make wine. One of the first decisions made by Pascal Collotte was to bring in the well-known consultant, Stephane Derenoncourt.
