Roques Mauriac

The Château Roques Mauriac vineyard grows in very favourable conditions: high density planting (4000 to 5000 stocks per hectare) on one of the highest plateaus of l’Entre-Deux-Mers. The soil is made up of excellent quality, very pure clay on a flush underlying layer of maritime limestone. A geological makeup made renowned by a prestigious neighbour- the Saint-Emilion plateau.

This unique terroir heavily influenced the choice of varietal planting, with a rather atypical predominance given to Cabernet Franc (48% of the vineyard in red), a reputedly difficult varietal but capable of producing infinitely elegant wines.

The 45 hectares of vineyard flourish under our undivided attention. A model of the French national action plan for the reduction of pesticide use (Ecophyto) the vines are cared for sustainably using short pruning, grass covering, de-budding, de-leafing and green harvesting if necessary. Late mechanical harvesting with the most recent tools ensures top quality selection during harvest.
