Description

Located in the heart of the Médoc, 10 km to the north of Saint Estèphe in Lesparre Médoc, the vineyard of Château Preuillac covers 30 hectares in a single stretch. Facing due south, it enjoys outstanding exposure to the sun, providing ideal conditions for the grapes to ripen.

50% of the vineyard is on clay-limestone and gravel, while one quarter is on excellent gravel soils and the remaining quarter is on sand-gravel.

The vineyard is 30 years old on average, and is planted with Merlot (53%), Cabernet Sauvignon (45%) and Cabernet Franc (2%). The pruning system is guyot double. All the work on the vines is carried out by hand. The soils are hoed and no weedkillers are used.
