Château Fayat


Created when the estates of Château La Commanderie de Mazeyres, Vieux Châteaux Bourgneuf and Prieurs de la Commanderie were united, Château Fayat, with an area of 16 hectares, benefits from a diverse and exceptional range of terroir. Clément Fayat, already owner of Château La Dominique, Grand Cru Classé of Saint Emilion, invested in the Pomerol appellation from 1984.
