OVER 3 CENTURIES OF PRESERVED FAMILY WINEGROWING TRADITIONS
With passion and skill, Château Guimberteau has assures the cultivation, the vinification and has perpetuated the tradition of a family run state for over 3 centuries. The total surface area of the vineyard is spread over 8.5 Hectares (21 acres).
The vineyard is endowed with a sandy-gravel soil and a subsoil that is rich in iron deposits which translates into an exceptional terroir.
The wine emanates from two grand Bordeaux grape varieties, 70% Merlot for the roundness and finesse and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon that gives the wine its structure, richness and the complexity of its bouquet.
The winemaking is undertaken with respect to traditional methods characterized by long macerations then several months of barrel ageing before the bottling.
In this way we obtain wines that are well-balanced, elegant, powerful yet supple, and that present an excellent ageing potential.
