Due to the vineyard’s close location to the estuary of the Gironde, it can profit from the ocean’s climate both hot and humid, bathed in light and sun, which is very conducive to the cultivation of the vine. Located in the town of Saint Sauveur, 3 km west of Pauillac, the property is exposed in the heart of what is known as a quality terroir. The vineyards in Haut-Médoc property enjoy a rather sandy gravelly soil, giving the wine more finesse.
