Rebuilt in 1800 for his daughter by Napoleon’s Minister of the Interior, the château was inhabited for 2 centuries by several aristocratic families who farmed the vineyards surrounding the château. In 2016, the Bollinger group bought the estate and split up the vines, which they still cultivate today, with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc bearing the château’s name. At the end of 2021, Jordan Feilders and his partner Emmanuel Diemoz bought back the château, which had been waiting to be reborn, to restore it to its former glory and inspire a new elegance.
Château de l’Écluse is surrounded by the vineyards of Sancerre. Accessible from Paris via the A77 motorway, exit number 24 towards Sancerre. 50 minutes from Bourges and Nevers railway stations.
