Château La PradeThe Family Crus
Château La Prade, located in the town of Saint-Cibard, largely on the limestone plateau but also on hillsides, was bought in 2000 by Nicolas Thienpont. It was spared by the frost phenomenon of April 2017. Merlots are predominant and dense, but always with this note of freshness that brings the limestone rock.
