Comte Delourmel

Since 1997, the Vignobles Gonfrier have developed their “vinifying wine merchant” activity. This amounts to purchasing grapes from some forty partner winegrowers, in accordance with our production specifications and overseen by our technical staff.
The resulting wines are vinified and aged by our own oenologists at our Chais de Rions site.
“Comte de Lourmel” pays homage to Général de Lourmel who served in the army of Napoleon III. He won fame notably in Algeria and Crimea , where he died during combat in 1854. Up until 1962, the Gonfrier family lived in an Algerian village named after the general as a tribute to his bravery.
