The hillside on which Chateau Blanche sits collapsed in heavy rainover 500 years ago. Rocks, limestone, and soil tumbled to mix withthe shale and sea matter further down, which created the perfectcondition for growing grapes and thus creating the perfect grapesat that.
Blanche is in the Montagne St. Emilion appellation on the right bank of Bordeaux. Which translates to "the mountain of St. Emilion." It was known as "the pride of the region" because its wines were considered superb above all. Nothing has changed.
The chateau is made up of 90 acres of vineyards, which is 60?bernet Franc and 40% Merlot. The vines are between 40 and 70years old. The property also features 20 acres of biodiversity consistingof ponds, streams, vegetable and herb gardens and a farm where theyraise game and cattle. They also produce their organic fertilizer andinsect habitat so that no chemicals are used nor inorganic fertilizers.
It's almost a self-sustaining city on its own. This kind of attention todetail is also evident in the wines. The vineyards feature over 2,000vines per acres, which means that each vine only has to produce asmall number of grapes making sure that what each vine producesis perfect.
The result is nothing short of perfection. Here is the quintessentialBordeaux offering with stunning clarity and focus. Our blend of equalparts Merlot and Cabernet Franc has all the power and subtlety of itsmore famous neighbors but could still outlast them in a noble feast.
