Château Sainte Marie

Château Sainte-Marie is located in the middle of the prime wine-growing Entre-Deux-Mers area between the Dordogne and Garonne rivers. The ideally oriented plots stretch across two hills with perfect exposure to the sun on some of the highest land in the Gironde département.

The fruit, whose amazing quality improves continuously, is picked from old vines, whose yield is carefully controlled, including a plot of more than a hundred-year-old Semillon and Merlot vines.

The distinctive inherent quality of Château Sainte-Marie wines results from the wide diversity of soils in which our vines are cultivated. The abundant variety of terroirs provides scope for selection that is worthy of very great wines. Our quest to enhance this variety led us to search beyond the geographical boundaries of the estate for satellite plots several kilometres apart. Thanks to thorough geological characterisation of candidate plots, we have succeeded in combining plots with complementary soil types:

The « Alios » plot located 8 kms (5 miles) from Sainte-Marie totals 14 hectares (341/2 acres) of clayey gravel soils.

Vieilles Vignes partially surrounds Sainte-Marie near the town of Targon and consists of 25 hectares (62 acres) of mainly clayey limestone.

The « Pierre Creusée » plot located near Capian consists of limestone that is heavily asteriated on the surface.

The « Moulin » plot commands a superb view over the Entre-Deux-Mers area and is made up of clayey gravel soils that are essential for the quality of our wines.
