SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU
The Château Ambe Tour Pourret is located on the original road which was connecting Saint-Émilon to Coutras. This road was used by Louis XIII at the end of the One Hundred Years War opposing the French to the British.
The first vestige of the castle dates back to 1811. At this time only a few part of the building existed and the emblematic tour was achieved in 1845. It was used during the middle ages to keep the workers under surveillance. The castle as it exists today was achieved in 1925. During World War Two, the property was requisitioned by Germans who occupied a part of the castle.
The Ambe Tour Pourret estate now consists of 5 hectares of vines, which are surrounded by the Château, a barrel cellar and a vat room. The vineyard has two main grapes : the Merlot and the Cabernet Franc and the terroir is old sand on clay. The Château is conducted in organic farming for a higher respect of its terroir and the environment. We got the organic certification in 2015.

SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU
Acquired in 2007, Château Ambe Tour Pourret - AOC Saint-Émilion Grand Cru, is located at the entrance of the medieval town of Saint-Émilion. Our ambition is to make a very high quality wine thanks to its "ancient sand on clay" soil. A typical soil that makes it possible to produce wines with very fine tannins and a velvety mouth ! To further enhance and preserve the terroir, we have chosen the organic path. Our first labelled vintage will be the 2015 vintage.
Âge moyen du vignoble - 35 years old
Encépagement - 75 % Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc
Densité moyenne de plantation - 6000 to 7000 feet/hectares
Production annuelle - 25 000 bottles
Vendanges - Mechanical harvest
Vinification - Each plot is vinified separately in order to respect the characteristics of the terroir. After the alcoholic fermentation we carry out a post-fermentation maceration at 28°C, during a period of approximately 15 days, to extract the fruit and obtain a wine of a good structure while keeping roundness. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in vats for 18 months.
Elevage - 60% in new barrels for 18 months and 40% in barrels of one wine for 18 months
« Involved in the vineyard of Bordeaux since 2001, I fell in love with the charm of Château Ambe Tour Pourret in 2007. A beautiful building with an inside courtyard, centered toward a centenary chestnut tree. The sweetness of the art of living at the entry of the prestigious village of Saint-Émilion with a small vineyard in front of the château.
