About the winery:
Built during the 13th Century, Chateau de la Selve is a fortified house, sitting on the ancient frontier between the Empire and the Kingdom of France. Since 1990, this magnificent property has been in the hands of Jean-Regis and Magdeleine Chazallon. Today, there are a total of 40 hectares in production, where six different grapes are planted. The untamed landscape, rare clay, and calcareous soils, combined with hot summer days and cool nights, offer a unique environment in which to work and make wine.
