The 18 hectare estate is situated in Civrac en Medoc on the left side of the Gironde estuary, approximately 70 km north-west of Bordeaux. The estate is managed sustainably and holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale (HVE3) certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management. The estate isprimarily planted with the Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with smaller parcels of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The 25-year old vines are planted at a density of 6,500 vines per hectare on clay limestone ridges. These slightly oily soils constitute a balanced soil; combining the freshness and humidity of the clay with the filtering properties of the limestone. The fruit benefits from the temperate climate and the sunny exposure of the plots. The grapes are harvested when they have reached optimum maturity levels, following tastings and oenological analysis.

The Chevreux family originated from St. Aubin de Blaye and acquired the vineyards in Civrac-en-Medoc and in Bégadan at the beginning of the last century. At this time, Alphonse Chevreux established the Chateau la Tessonniere. He named the chateau after ‘Tessoun’ which formerly in Gascon dialect meant ‘badger burrow’ as the estate was full of them. In 1995, Cedric Colemyn, the great-grandson of founder Alphonse Chevreux and the fifth generation of winemakers took over the running of the Chateau. Having studied viticulture and oenology, he brought with him a dynamic vision and invested in the vineyards, resulting in the Cru Artisan designation. The vineyard is sustainably cultivated at holds the HVE Level 3 certification.
