Désiré Estrade, our grandfather and his sons, came from Lamtar - near Oran in Algeria, to Fourcès in 1962. They built this estate by hard work to turn it into how it is today.
They have cleared land, replanted all the vineyard and built wineries in order to produce independently top quality wines.
Thanks to them, Rémy and Eric could build on these solid foundations in order to produce now top of the range Côtes de Gascogne wines for your greater pleasure.
We combine tradition and modernity as did our grandfather in his time, we are continuing today to develop Domaine de Laxé with the same determination, by maturing our wines in our cellar and offering them to the whole world.
The whole process from the vine planting to the bottling is carried out here on this site in order to offer you enjoyment of the best quality.
A Family History
We plant our vines very carrefully thanks to a know-how acquired from generation to generation, depending on grape varieties, soil and climate. Quality and quantity are good from the first harvests.
We use accurate carefully considered winegrowing methods, using few treatments - only when absolutely necessary.
We harvest by night because of the lower grape temperature that limits the potential damage due to air, light and heat. It also avoids us having to cool the grape artificially, which is also energy-saving.
Our winery is built to allow us to control the temperature of musts and wine throughout the whole wine-making process, which is the key to the success of our Gascony wines.
The quality, safety, and well-being of our employees are essential for us at every stage of the wine-making process.
All those stages of production are carefully considered and monitored to ensure for you the best quality.
We respect environmental rules, especially regarding the storage and the treatment of waste products from the winery.
