Acquired in 1998, this magnificent 30-hectare vineyard, almost in one piece on the limestone plateau, is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The average age of the vineyard is 20 years old.
This very limestone soil brings freshness and finesse, typical of the great wines of Bordeaux.
Thus, the replanting program since the acquisition of the property in 1998 led, due to the nature of the soil, to a very strong dominant Merlot grape variety.
Max de Pourtalès has a very specific objective: to obtain a healthy and ripe grape. Season after season, he is listening to his soil, the plant in his environment. A natural set to which he wants to give the most respect, accuracy and possible application.
From the beginning of its acquisition, it makes an ecological choice for a better valuation of the soil and the plant.
