The vineyard

 

The vineyard, of which the head office is the Château La Croix d'Armens in Saint-Emilion, has a surface area of 30 Hectares of vines, on three different A.O.C : Saint-Emilion Grand Cru and Saint-Emilion; Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux and Bordeaux.

An Exceptional Terroir 

The "Grand Terroir" is much more complex that we imagine...It's not only the soil, the ground, his natural capacity to drain, to retain humudity (limestone, clay), the different elements percentage which will give a warm or cold ground, rich or poor...it's also the orientation. A complex ground : gravel, clay, sand with unique undercoat called "Crasse de Fer", which gives to our Saint-Emilion wines their own style.

Grape Varieties

 

             70 %   Merlot

             25% Cabernet Sauvignon

             5% Old Cabernet Franc

 

The plantation density is : 5500 plants per ha with a maximum yield of 40 hl/hectare.

Average age of the vineyard in production : more than 45 years old in Saint-Emilion, some plots are more than 60 years old in Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.

 

If it does exist through our different vintages uncountable nuances to be discovered, it seems that the elegance and finesse characterize our wines.
