Located on the edge of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Saint-Paul borders the prestigious Château Sociando Mallet and Château Charmail estates.
The 20 hectares of vines at Château Saint-Paul grow on gravelly ridges overlooking the Gironde, where the two magnificent terroirs of Haut-Médoc and Saint-Estèphe meet. Cellar master Arnaud Villette
, a true "Médocain", maintains his passion for this terroir from one vintage to the next.
Together with the selective use of crop protection agents, the resumption of soil cultivation – which goes hand in hand with careful work on the vines (defoliation, thinning out etc.) – has made it possible to harvest healthy and perfectly ripened grapes. The grapes are pressed with care and precision, and the wine is aged for twelve months in French oak barriques.
The vineyard is planted with Merlot (50%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Cabernet franc (8%) and Petit Verdot (2%), from which rounded, full-bodied and silky wines are produced after 12 months in barriques. These extremely long-lived wines develop the traditional character of the great Médocs.
