The 18-hectare vineyard blossoms on Saint-Émilion terroir, land recognized for its richness, a combination of sand, clay and gravel. A particularly interesting geological complex on which our plot plans to take full advantage. Thus, each variety of grape finds the resources for optimal growth. Merlot, which represents 90% of the estate, a plant known for its premature nature: will find a beautiful anchoring that will favor its ripening. The Cabernet Franc, completes our vineyard, they take root and appreciate the layers of clay found in our grounds.
All our wines are made with the utmost demand. We have been winemakers for 5 generations, we work as a family, on a human scale. The main part of our vineyards are located around the castle or within a radius of less than 5 km. Our soils are mostly sands and gravel and we preserve them by working as naturally as possible: without herbicides and without synthetic fertilizers.
We harvest by hand and carefully select the best grapes. Day after day, plot after plot, our energy and philosophy allow you to offer you fine wines and great elegance.
"Hubert de Boüard and Alain Raynaud consulting. In the east of the appellation. Mix of terrains.
Very dark purple. Luscious start and then refined tannins and fine structure. Rather fine. Juicy leather. Appetising. 16.5 Points."

"The 2016 Pindefleurs is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has a well-defined and harmonious bouquet that dishes out some wonderful black cherry and redcurrant fruit, the new oak neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, beautifully balanced with a structured, tobacco-tinged finish that is almost Médoc-like in style. This is a great Saint Emilion that is going places—a sublime follow-up to the outstanding 2015 Pindefleurs.
