En 1967, Henri Ducourt bought several hectares of vines in the commune of Cessac. This estate is split across several hamlets, one of which, Redon, derives its name from the soft, curved shape of the land. ‘Redon’ means ‘round’ in the language of Occitan. The vineyard is planted only with red varietals on a clay-limestone terroir that is well-suited to making fine, full-flavoured wines.
Annual production : 25 000 bottles
