A Saint-Émilion Grand Cru by Château de Pressac

The estate
East of Saint-Émilion, on the right bank of Bordeaux, Château de Pressac overlooks the town of Saint-Etienne de Lisse. An important stronghold during the Hundred Years’ War, there since the advent of Bordeaux viticulture, Château de Pressac is a historic reference in the region. Since 1997, the Quenin family has had the honour of managing the Pressac vineyard and estate. Thanks to their philosophy of excellence and their passion for this exceptional terroir, they have elevated Château de Pressac to the rank of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru in 2012.

The vineyard
The 33-hectare vineyard is managed according to the principles of sustainable agriculture. The vines are planted in a limestone plateau overlooking the Dordogne.

The ageing
Ageing in barrels for 16 to 18 months. 50% new French oak barrels.
