The Château Verdignan vineyard is located north of Saint-Seurin-de-Cadourne, a neighbouring commune of Saint-Estèphe. It extends over a hill whose top reaches an altitude of 20 metres and benefits greatly from the influence of the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. From a single block of 40 hectares, it is planted on soils composed mainly of beautiful gravel and clay. In the centre of the village, a large clay and limestone plateau of 20 additional hectares was replanted about ten years ago.
Known as one of the oldest wine-growing estates in the canton of Pauillac, Verdignan first stands out for the very beautiful architecture of its castle. The estate remained in the same family from the end of the 18th century until 1934, which shows that the former owners liked to stay in this place steeped in history with its breathtaking views. 1720 is the date on the stone lintel of the oldest door of the Verdignan vat house, and the abbeys have held the know-how of wine making for many years. It is therefore not surprising that the Verdignan vat house was built a few hundred metres from the old Abbey of Cadourne, a famous stopover for pilgrims from Compostela who crossed the estuary when they arrived at the port of the village called La Maréchale. This port, which was also a frequent place for loading barges to bring wine barrels to Bordeaux.
From the cultivation of the vine to the maturing of the wine, through the seasons, we work in accordance with tradition and the environment without rejecting modernism (Certified Agriculture Respectueuse de l'Environnement en Aquitaine level 2 (AREA) and High Environmental Value (HVE) level 3). Our objective is to optimize the quality of our grapes in order to harvest a very healthy harvest at maturity.
Great Bordeaux wines are only ready to drink after a few years of ageing, which allows the wine to flourish and gives it the aromas and taste that make great Bordeaux wines unique products. at Château Verdignan, we have become specialists in this field; storing wines for late marketing allows our customers to benefit from this superb evolution in aromas.
"THE GREAT TERROIRS LOOK AT THE WATER"
Verdignan is a must in the Médoc with a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties, a superb building that bears witness to the architectural eclecticism of the 19th century, facing the estuary. It is bordered by vines planted on a Graves terroir that give this wine something magical.
