Château Haut‐Castelot, Saint‐Emilion, is owned by Jean‐François Janoueix.
It is the second wine of the Château Castelot, Saint‐Emilion Grand Cru, because the Chateau Haut-Castelot vines are still young.
The vineyard benefits from a nice micro‐climate thanks to its ideal exposure. Its situation optimizes the maturity of the grapes, allowing Saint‐Emilion to reach exceptional levels. The harvest is picked and sorted by hand.
Soil type: Siliceous on gravelly and ferruginous subsoil (so precious for wine aromas)
