The history of the Château
The vineyard surrounding the Château is situated on one of the best gravelly hilltops to be found between Margaux and Saint Julien Beychevelle, near the river, which makes it an exceptional quality growing area with deep, well-drained soil. All the necessary elements are there: climate tempered by the proximity of the river, a noble “terroir”, proven technical input and most important, the respect and knowledge of the men who work under Stephane Derenoncourt. Without the necessary intimacy between man and nature, it is impossible to make a great wine.
