Château Tour de Capet

Bordeaux, bordeaux France

Château Tour de Capet lies in the south of Saint-Émilion near Saint-Hippolyte, just below its sister estate Château Capet-Guillier. Since 2009 the property has been run by Antoine Moueix Propriétés, a producer with over a century's experience on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. The wine is made by Benoît Coq and benefits from the immense experience of the renowned consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt.

The 10 hectares of vineyards lie on flatter ground, with soils of sand, loam, and clay. They are treated with a 'zero residue' policy, which prohibits the use of herbicides. The good drainage here and looser soils produce a lighter style of Bordeaux which matures quickly. The blend contains 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Fermentation takes place in the traditional concrete tanks with four to five weeks' maceration and four days of frequent remontage. The wine is then aged for 12 months in French oak: roughly one third in new casks and two-thirds in casks which are one or two years old.
