Chateau Haut Vigneau

The property is situated in the commune of Martillac. Its 20 hectares produce a red wine typical of its Pessac-Léognan appellation.

History and Terroir

This property was originally part of the estate belonging to Baron de Montesquieu. In 1765, Belleyme, the royal geographer, published a map on which the site “Vigneau de haut” appears clearly planted with vines; today, this property belongs to Eric Perrin. Beginning in the 1980s, he began the long-term work of clearing the land and replanting a vineyard from scratch.

 With its remarkable situation, its choice terroir, and careful work in both vineyard and vat room, Château Haut-Vigneau will soon be playing in the big leagues..

With oenological advice from Christophe Olivier, who works closely with Prof. Denis Dubourdieu, Eric Perrin strives to produce a truly classic great wine, expressing both the power and the finesse of its fruit.

Winemaking at Haut-Vigneau is based on a great respect for its grapes (60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot) and terroir (deep Garonnaise gravel), together with careful and traditional aging (in 20% new barrels).
