Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru
Alcohol 14,0 %
This 12ha vineyard was bought by the Hong-Kong based Peter Kwok in 1997. He is a passionate and fascinate gentleman who saved nor costs nor effort to produce the best wines possible on the terroir. Mr. Peter Kwok is also owner of Château Tour Saint Christophe (Saint Emilion), Château Bellefont Belcier and L’Enclos Tourmaline in Pomerol. Since 2019, Stéphane Schinazi (a bordelais in the technology sector) bought this property. The vines have a respectable age of around 35 years, the plantation is very dense (6000vines/ha). The soil consists of fine gravel mixed with a salty quartz soil as a top layer on a deep clay subsoil. Since 2010, the wine is bio certified. De wine ripens on 35% new oak barrels, 35% on barrels of 1 year and the rest on barrels of 2 years. The manager and wine maker is Jérome Aguirre, who used to work for Mrs. Péré-Vergé at Pomerol. Michel Rolland is the advisor.
