ABOUT THE CHÂTEAU
Created by Henri Martin, this estate is unique in having been built up piece by piece over several years through the purchase of parcels, the majority of which were classified as “grands crus” in 1855. The origin of the terroirs and the painstaking growing and vinification techniques are the reasons why its quality is recognised worldwide.
Soils: Sand and gravel with a little clay
Farming: Harvest by hand
