Ferdinand Bouffard breathes his last
The dynamic négociant breathes his last. The different domaines continue as best they can during the First World War while awaiting a new owner. This comes in 1919 in the person of Albert Porte. He sells Pavie-Pigasse—which will become Pavie-Decesse—and unites the other domaines to create the current Château Pavie.
Ferdinand Bouffard, a Bordeaux négociant, inherits the Domaine de la Sable. Gradually, over twenty years, he purchases the smaller neighboring vineyards of Pigasse, Chapus, Fayard and Dussaut to create a property of almost 50 hectares! Although he gives birth to what would become Château Pavie, Bouffard continues to vinify and sell each property's wine separately: Larcis-Bergey, Pavie-Pigasse, Pimpinelle, Clos Simard and La Sable.
