Jean Michel PASQUON
I was born on the 31st March 1945 in Parsac (Gironde). After graduating from high school, then obtaining a professional qualification in masonry and civil engineering, I began my career in the family firm from 1959 to 1962.
In 1965, at the end of my military service, I returned to work in the company. In 1981, my brother Bernard and myself took over the firm under the name SARL Pasquon Fils (Sons).
Today the third generation is preparing for the succession of the family firm.
I am passionate about wine, old sports cars and the Automobile Rally club, as well as team sports like football and rugby.
It is a civil engineering firm specialized in reinforced concrete structures and stone masonry, qualified in the restauration of heritage buildings. Our speciality is the construction of vats and reservoirs for wine and water, built on site according to our company’s particular technique, which is certified by Qualibat. This savoir-faire has been at the heart of the company from the start, when Olindo PASQUON figured on the skilled trade register of the Department of Gironde as a « Cement Mason ».
Examples of our recent work in terms of cement vats can be seen at : Château Anthonic (Médoc), Château Larrivet Haut Brion and Château de Fieuzal in Pessac Léognan, Château Angelus, Château Larcis Ducasse, Château Pavie Macquin, Château Beauséjour Héritiers Duffau Lagarrosse, Château Bellevue and Château Franc la Grâce Dieu in St Emilion, …
Pasquon Fils is currently being contacted for consultant assignments in the NAPA VALLEY.
Our project at Château Petrus
In 2012, Pasquon Fils built a new concrete vat room for one of the flagship estates of the Bordeaux vineyard, Château Pétrus. The new vat room is made up of 12 fermenting vats of varying capacities, built in two rows which face eachother. Construction took place inside the new winery, in a space designated by the client and following Pasquon’s specific technique.
