The vineyard is situated on some of the finest terroir of Saint Estephe, on the hallowed gravel plateau shared among parcels from Château Montrose, Cos d'Estournel and Haut Marbuzet.
The vinification is done in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and the wine is transferred into oak barrels for 12 month of ageing. This enhances the fruit in this wine and there is no hard tannins, rusticity or dryness, The result is a very enjoyable Saint-Estèphe
The winemaker Saint Martin family knows how to make and run a great Saint-Estèphe property having contributed a generation to Château Lafon Rochet.
