Nos vignobles : les vignes du Château Beauséjour et du Château Langlais


Château Beauséjour was founded in 1864, but it was in 1935 that the Dupuy family acquired it. Doctor Marceau Dupuy, mayor of Puisseguin from 1935 to 1977, married and father of two children, he established himself as a doctor but also as a wine grower in the commune of Puisseguin. He acquired Château Beauséjour between the wars, setting up his medical practice and his family there.

Engaged in the resistance, he helped his brother, Doctor Edouard Dupuy (Mayor and General Councilor of Villamblard), to hide numerous families.

After the Second World War, in 1947, Marceau's son, Alain Dupuy, took over as head of Château Beauséjour. His vision of viticulture is the one that will prevail through the three generations that will succeed him: organic agriculture, respectful of the environment, health, fauna and flora, through the refusal of synthetic chemical treatments.

Alongside his passions for wine and tractors, Alain was a man very committed to respecting the environment. With a gift for drawing, he wrote satires and parodic critiques to denounce environmental political abuses, deforestation, the use of weedkillers to produce more, globalization and overconsumption.

Gérard Dupuy took over the management of the Vignobles in the 90s. Following in the footsteps of his father, he practices organic farming throughout the vineyard. He refuses synthetic chemical treatments and wants his vines to be free of pesticides. Gérard cares deeply about the environment, but also about the health of consumers.Gérard thus obtained organic certification from the ECOCERT organization in 1996. In the region, and at that time, there were extremely few organic wine growers. Gérard and his father Alain are therefore among the pioneers of organic wine in Bordeaux.

After the death of his father in 2009, Gérard found himself alone in management. He will undertake big changes:

  • The development of wine exports: Vignobles Dupuy wines are now present in Canada, the United States, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, Lebanon, Cameroon, and the French Overseas Territories. TOM and of course in several European countries (United Kingdom, Poland, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark).
  • The creation of a tasting/restaurant space at Château Beauséjour (link to the visit tab): after major work, Vignobles Dupuy has a tasting room to accommodate its customers and a dining room available for rental for group meals.
  • The construction of a rainwater collection basin
  • The installation of beehives in the castle’s vegetable garden

Between 2016 and 2019, Gérard is joined by his three children:

  • Victor Dupuy: cellar master of Vignobles Dupuy, he takes care of the entire wine-making process, from the vineyard to bottling.
  • Manuel Dupuy: he assists his older brother Victor in cultivating vines and producing wine, but he is mainly a tractor driver. He takes care of the various soil works in the vineyard.
  • Camille Dupuy: she is responsible for the administrative and commercial part of the vineyard.

The fourth generation follows in the footsteps of their ancestors, and continues to practice organic farming. In 2016, Victor and Manuel made the decision, with their father, to practice biodynamics on two thirds of the estate. Château Beauséjour thus obtained Demeter certification in 2020.

In 2019, the three children created the famous “Empreintes” vintage, available in red wine and white wine. This cuvée without added sulphites breaks free from the criteria of traditional Bordeaux wines: it is fruity, delicious, and does not require aging to be appreciated.

Château Langlais


Also in the commune of Puisseguin, to the east of Château de Beauséjour, we cultivate 12 hectares of vines on a clay-limestone terroir typical of the region. Château Langlais, owned by the Dupuy family, contains very old vintages in its cellars. This building, whose base and two towers date from the 14th century, would have been a place of stay for the sister of Henri IV, King of France. Its walls were degraded during the Revolution, but the castle regained its prestige in 1860 thanks to the granddaughter of its owner, the privateer Martinot.
