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…)
