A brief history
Located just outside the village of Saint Emilion, Château Cadet Bon has produced wines that reflect the unique terroir since 1867. The southern facing and slightly sloped vineyard, which is ideal for soaking up the optimal amount of sunlight, occupies 7 hectares, 6 of which are on a sole plot. The vineyard reflects the classic Saint Emilion Way, composed of 80 percent merlot and 20 percent cabernet franc. The average age of the vines is 40 years.
The mixture of chalk and clay soil is a replica of the Saint Emilion coast, Enjalbert, where asteria fossils make up the limestone soil.
Since 2001, Château Cadet Bon has had one wish that sets it apart from the rest: To take what is offered by the soil and varietals in the most natural way possible.
By following this simple mantra, an authentic wine is produced. Thanks to the natural terroir of Cadet Bon, the high quality of the grapes emerges in the wine with little added or manipulated.
From a year’s worth of hard work in the vineyard, to the two years of maturation in the cellar, we present to you a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé. The environmental approach is essential to benefit from such a terroir. Therefore, our transformation to biodynamic farming in 2017 will reward us with all the terroir has to offer.
