Founder of the company in 1844, Pierre Quancard epitomizes the origin of the family tradition for future generations. Handed down from one generation to the next – writing the history of Cheval Quancard. Various characters and personalities have marked each era, weaving an epic dynastic tale that is closely entwined with the wines of Bordeaux, delving deeply into terroirs and hearts, led by a horse symbolising loyalty, wisdom and conquest.
At Château Le Calvaire lie the Quancard family roots. Many of the chateau’s vines share the same destiny as Terrefort. They overlook the Dordogne, a river flowing with hopes and expectations, many of which are reflected here in this beautiful wine, born from a passion for the terroir and its history.
Straddling the 45th parallel, the vines of the château benefit from a microclimate that is ideal for winegrowing: moderately warm, humid, masses of sunshine and mild winters…
