Planted on a historic terroir composed of 95% Garonne gravel and 5% clay, the vineyard is spread over three distinct locations, taking advantage of exceptional richness and aromatic diversity. The traditional grape varieties of the Médoc, Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot (33%), Cabernet Franc (9%) and Petit Verdot (5%) express the originality of the Saint-Estèphe terroir. Respectful of the environment, vineyard management favours tillage and natural fertilizer in order to minimize the use of chemicals.
Didier Cuvelier is accompanied by Vineyard Manager Jonathan Servant, Oenologist Isabelle Davin and Cellar Master Vincent Pautard. From the vineyard to the bottle, combining tradition and modernity, the expertise of the team is used to produce wines of high quality while respecting the soil and the identity of the château.
