The Medoc appellation is part of the prestigious Bordeaux wine region. A red wine appellation, its mainly gravel soil allows its key grape – Cabernet Sauvignon – to reach optimum ripeness, giving the
wines good body, structure and length.
Working with their long-term partner-grower, the Maison Castel oenolgists choose the very best quality fruit from the Haut-Médoc area. The different parcels are vinified separately in order to enhance their expression and extraction is adapted according to the vintage. The wine spends a long period in tank (3 – 4 months) followed by oak ageing to enhance fruit character and add body.
