Thibaut Decoster

Thibault Decoster had a dream to become a wine producer. Having studied commerce until 2001, he set out in the hope of realising his dream. Many wealthy dreamers simply buy an established estate, install professionals to run it, and sit in the comfort of their Chateau, enjoying the lifestyle.


Instead, Thibault asked the (Irish) owners of Chateau de Fieuzal at Leognan, if they would teach him about winemaking. He spent three years there before looking for his own property. He had fallen in love with St. Emilion, and it was here he chose to fulfill his dream, and, with the help of his father, he bought Chateau La Commanderie in 2004. While he worked hands on during his apprenticeship, he of course realised he would need a top winemaker to produce a wine of the quality of this estate.


He employs the stellar Hubert de Bouard as his consultant, who also makes La Fleur de Bouard, and the Grand Cru Classé, Angelus. Mr. Decoster believes the most important thing to learn as a vigneron is humility as you work with, and are so dependent on, nature. Every day there is something new to learn, and he believes he may truly be a vigneron by the end of his days.
