History

The vineyard of Château Haut-Badette goes back to a distant origin. Badette figure in 1763 on the famous map of Pierre de Belleyme, geographer engineer of King Louis XV.

Old property, in the eighteenth century, the Counts of Carles, then the Counts of Allard. In 1869, Charles-Adolphe d'Allard, married to Berthe de Carles, was the mayor of Saint-Emilion. On January 21, 1890, his daughter Marie brought the Château Haut-Badette as a dowry to her husband, Baron Henri du Foussat de Bogeron. Their son Gabriel inherited it on January 3, 1930 and ceded it on January 7, 1970 to Jean-François JANOUEIX, its current owner, who put this domain in perfect condition.
