In the heart of the prestigious terroir of Saint-Emilion in Bordeaux, Château d’Arcole comprises 11 acres planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Located in the village of Saint-Sulpice-de-Faleyrens, Château d’Arcole carries the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation and meets specific production criteria.
The vineyard, with its unique and virgin soil, is concentrated in a single parcel around the Château. Having always being cultivated organically and never subjected in his 300 years history to any form of chemical or unnatural products, the property guarantees the quality and the consistency of its approach through the official French certified organic “Agriculture Biologique” symbol. No weed killers, pesticides or fertilizers are used on the property. The soil is lightly worked to manage grass growth. Only natural products are used to protect the vines. Debudding, deleafing and green harvest: these viticultural techniques enable management of the yield, aeration of the bunches and also promote the natural defences of the vine against disease.
