Since acquiring Chteau Argadens, the Sichel family has put in place a vast renovation program, with the aim of making the wine a benchmark within the Bordeaux category. After 12 months in oak barrels, Argadens red is thoroughly modern Bordeaux with lots of concentrated fruit and an attractive, supple balance. Not surprisingly, it gets consistently high marks in tastings and competitions.

In 2002, Maison Sichel bought a property in Saint-André-du-Bois 60 km south of Bordeaux and renamed it Château Argadens in reference to the noble family which founded the estate in the thirteenth century.
A major investment programme was launched at Château Argadens to restructure the vineyard, increase plantation density, modernise the winery and build an ageing cellar. Efforts are going on to ensure that this work is carried out with the greatest precision and care, the objective being to allow the quality of the terroir to be expressed to the full.
Château Argadens produces one white and one red wine. The very first vintage of Château d'Argadens won a medal in the Concours des Grands Vins de France in Mâcon. It wins numerous awards and distinctions every year, proof of Maison Sichel's clear determination to earn Château d'Argadens a place among the best wines in its appellation of Bordeaux Supérieur.
