Château du Breuil, Haut-Médoc

Château du Breuil, Haut-Médoc

Established in the 6th century, the Baronnie du Breuil is the oldest vineyard in the Médoc region. Clay and limestone predominate in the vineyards, which have an average vine age of over 20 years, and are managed with inter-row grass cover to best manage yield and quality. The blend is 54% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot; vinification is carried out in small tanks, allowing small plots to be worked upon separately. After a cool fermentation, the wine is aged for about a year in a mixture of French and American oak barrels, of which 10% are new. Recognised as a cru bourgeois in 1932, its status was confirmed in 2003.
