A bit of history : Henri IV, once compelled to stay overnight on this land, was given such a warm welcome that he allowed his host to build a small modern Château called “Castelot” in lieu of the old house. The domain is located nearby three Grands Crus Classes : Chateau Tertre Daugay, Fonplegade and La Madeleine.

“No doubt Henry IV would have appreciated the purple robe of Castelot, the flavor as long as a regal procession, a royal guard of mild spices, vanilla, ripe fruit and new leather, devilishly harmonious and lively on the palate, with rounded tannins and a wonderfully lingering finish... in a few words, the perfect wine for a King !”

Guy Carriere, Thuries Magazine.

The harvest: using small crates, the grapes are picked and sorted by hand by 120 grape-pickers in a great atmosphere.
