Created in 1982, Château Laulan is a wine estate of 11.4ha of vines located in the Francs - Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, about 15km from Saint-Emilion. East of Libournais, this appellation is the most continental of Bordeaux. It is located on clay-limestone and marly hillsides among the highest in the Gironde.
The origin of Francs dates back to the 5th century, when the area received its name from an army of Francs who won a battle at a place called Ad Francos, later changed to Francs. The region has 42 wine growers and 525 hectares of vines, which makes it one of the smallest Bordeaux AOP.
