Saint‐Émilion Grand Cru Owners : 1978 Jean‐François Janoueix Area under vine : 9 hectares.
100% Organic grapes 70 % Merlot, 30 % Cabernet Franc Barrels : 45 (4500 boxes)
The vineyard benefits from a beautiful micro‐climate. It is protected from northerly winds by the hill of Château Quintus, Grand Cru Classé from which it is separated only by the national road 670 A, Libourne/Bergerac. Its situation optimises the evolution of the maturity of the grapes, allowing Saint‐Emilion to reach exceptional levels.
Siliceous on gravelly, ferruginous subsoil so precious for the aromas of wine.
70% Merlot for roundness, 20% Cabernet Franc for elegance, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon for the framework.
Character of the wine
Wine with fine bouquet and great finesse, quickly giving an excellent bottle, which can still be kept for 10 to 25 years depending on the vintage. Château Castelot was awarded the Trophée des Honneurs by the town of Saint‐Émilion. Its name was given to it by Henry IV in 1578
