The Winery

The wine estate covers an area of 14.3 hectares, 13.3 hectares of which are planted.

The hectare with the old vines was uprooted last year because of too low a yield. It can be planted again in 2020.

The average age of the vines is 25 to 30 years. This means that they will produce 45 to 50 hectolitres per hectare in 3 to 5 years. The oldest vines give a lower yield, but they are important for guaranteeing the quality of the wine.

The vineyard and the wine production are monitored by two reputable oenologists:

  • Pierre Sadaune, agronomy engineer and oenologist (former technical director of Château Phelan Ségur)

  • Eric Boissenot, oenologist and reputable expert at leading estates in Médoc (Lafite Rotschild, Margaux, Montrose…)
