Preparationof the soil
To produce exceptional fruit, it is important to focus on soil preparation. We pay particular attention to this job so that the different grape varieties can take full advantage of their respective terroirs.
We are committed to respecting the environment and our parcels and therefore limit the treatments we use in the vineyard. Benefiting from a micro climate thanks to the proximity of the estuary, our wines fully express the concept of terroir. We would be very pleased to welcome you here and help you discover our Côtes de Bourg and Côtes de Blaye wines.
The harvest takes place from mid September to early October, depending on the maturity of each grape variety. We start with the white grapes followed by the red. The grapes are harvested by hand on certain parcels or by means of a grape harvester.
The grapes arrive at the Château, where they are sorted to ensure the quality of the fruit from which the juice will be extracted by mechanical pressure.
It is then that the fermentation of the must can begin. The length of time and the temperature also differ according to the grape variety. We work closely with an oenologist, taking advantage of their expertise and objective eye to deliver the best wine possible.
