The Château La Lagune marsh 34 ha
biodiversity refuge 

“We are a civilisation of water,” writes Médoc anthropologist Christian Coulon, “and this is the identity of the Médoc,
held together by the conductor that intimately unites man and nature.”

Embraced by two expanses of water, the Atlantic Ocean to the West and the Gironde estuary to the East, the geography of the Médoc is dictated by the flow of the river and the ocean. 

A large forest as well as a natural estuary located at the border of our vineyards. Here we find an idyllic connection between two elements: water and land.

This marsh, typical of the ancient landscapes of the Médoc, represents a remarkable biodiversity conservation area.

The marsh’s unique character, which is conducive to life, has led to its inclusion on the list of natural areas of floristic and faunistic ecological interest (ZNIEFF), a recognition awarded by the State through the national conservatories.

Marsh Cow : Preservation of a rare species

A link in the chain of biodiversity, the Landes marsh cows also live in the marsh. A rare breed of cattle thought to be extinct, they are the beneficiaries of a conservation programme and play a part in ecopastoralism.
