Once part of Château Bourgneuf, near Château Trotanoy, the Gros family purchased the first plot of Château Grange-Neuve at the end of the 19th century. They built up vineyard land over the years through a succession of small purchases, and it now stretches over 18 acres of vines replanted in 1956. Harvest is done by hand and fully destemmed. Grapes are then kept in vats for over a month with frequent pumpovers. Following drawing-off and separation of press wines, the wine is left to clarify naturally in vats. All wines are then transferred into oak barrels 3 months after harvest.
