Château Jean Faux was purchased by Pascal Callotte in 2002. Callotte had worked for Tonnellerie Saury, a producer of wine barrels and casks. His consultant winemaker is Stéphane Derenoncourt, who has worked for prestigious Bordeaux estates such as Domaine de Chevalier. After buying Château Jean Faux, they immediately set out to fully renovate the winery and its vineyards, which are now fully organic. The Trois Maisons label is part of Callotte’s négociant business. The grapes are purchased from a grower whose organically farmed vineyards are 7 kilometres from the estate. An example of classic “Right Bank” Bordeaux, the Trois Maisons is a blend of 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Cabernet Franc. Certified organic by Ecocert, it was matured in stainless steel and has no added sulphites. The label depicts the 18th century French bailiff Cadet Rousselle and his 3 houses. Bright vermillion in color, the Trois Maisons is medium-full in body with fruit forward aromas, ripe flavors, and soft tannins. A wine that can hold in the cellar for 4-5 years, the palate offers notes of myrobalan, cassis and violet.
