From: Vin de Pays, France
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
My grandfather, Alfred HECQUET, originally from Cambrai in the north of France, came to the South West, following the 1914 war, and married a daughter of a winegrower from the region of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande.
My grandparents bought, in 1943, a property called Cantalouette, on the slopes of Montravel, near an old family home, called Château de Ponchapt. This ancient castle, admirably situated on the height of a summit, had belonged to the noble family of “Ségur”.
“The land of Peysservent”, today Puy Servain, belonged to the “Seigneurie de Ponchac”, according to the “confession and enumeration” formulated in 1764 by “Philippe Henry, Marquis de Ségur, Seigneur de Ponchac, Fougueyrolles and other places ".
The coat of arms of our wines is evocative of both past and current owners. it reflects the secular existence of the vineyard, and the nobility of its products. These owe their quality to respect for places and wine-growing tradition, and also to the use of the most modern knowledge of oenology.
Isn't the best often at the limit of the possible?
Hence the motto used under our coat of arms as well as on our labels and capsules.
"The best at the limit of the possible"
When my father inherited the estate, he left the cooperative cellar to vinify his wine, which he marketed under the name of Château Puy Servain, name of the locality, which means Sommet (Puy), Venteux or served by the wind (Servain ).
Since then, the operation has been constantly restructured, enlarged, enriched with numerous buildings and equipment.
As for me, after having prepared a technician's certificate in Viticulture and Oenology, I obtained the National Diploma of Oenology, at the Institute of Oenology of Bordeaux and I made my end of study thesis at the Château d'Yquem, before assuming the direction of the technical service, and of the oenology laboratory of the CIVRB, for 8 years.
Currently, I am an oenologist-consultant for a few wine estates and take care of the development of Château Puy Servain Terrement.
