Terroir

The estate is situated on the east side of the Saint Seurin de Cadourne village, facing the Gironde estuary, a drain away from the St Estephe appellation. The neighbors are the Chateau Sociando-Mallet and Charmail.
Very hilly, the vineyard benefits from the exceptional quality of deep gravels, who come from the melting of the Pyrenees glaciers, and have been dropped there by the stream during the Quaternary period.
This draining flooring, associated to the micoclimate generated by the Gironde estuary allows the unique and incomparable expression of the Cabernat Sauvignon, main grape variety of the Grands Crus du Médoc.
