Description

The vines of Château Capet Guillier are located in the southern part of Saint Emilion, and enjoy ideal exposure, on Fronsac molasse stone, with its active limestone and self-draining slopes. Château Tour de Capet enjoys sandy-silt soil: this is an absolute godsend for winegrowers, as it is so easy to manage. Merlot and Malbec have their work cut out for themselves on a soil which is both low in organic matter and subject to water constraints… and where the grapes mature early!
