The wine is matured in oak barrels until it is bottled and can finally reveal the marvellous character of its fine gravel soil. This well balanced wine develops charm and richness early in the bottle, allowing it to be enjoyed young.

Growing Conditions

Clos des Demoiselles grew its 4 hectares of old Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon on the south side of the Puy de Menjon, the highest point of the Medoc.

The grapes of this small vineyard, jewel set between the vineyards of Fonréaud and Lestage, planted mainly in Merlot.

- Sustainable viticulture: Terra Vitis
- Soil type: Pyrenean gravel on a limestone subsoil containing fossils
- Area: 4 hectares


The grapes are handpicked when perfectly ripe.


A strict selection of the parcels and the
grapes takes place during the harvest. After a gentle crushing and
destemming of the grapes, the must is put into small-thermoregulated
vats ensuring that the fermentations are perfectly controlled, bringing
out the expression, the richness and the nuances of each plot. The
vatting period lasts 20 to 25 days depending on the vintage.


Maturing lasts around 14 months in merrian oak barrels, a
1/3 of which are replaced each year. We then undertake the final
blending before bottling at the chateau
