Producer Profile; Chateau Peymouton is part of the estate of Chateau Laroque, a historic Grande Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion just to the east of the medieval village, acquired by the Beaumartin family in 1935. From the 1960's, the family started regenerating and modernising the vineyards along with their facilities. Selective soil tilling and crop cover along with vine management due to climatic change have helped in their HVE 3 accreditation.
Chateau Peymouton is located on a high plateau on a parcel of the estate, that is composed of a thin layer of rich clay over limestone and partly of deep, thick red clay. These soils contribute density and structure while the limestone helps impart elegance to the wine.
The Beaumartin family have the upmost care and attention for the vineyard which is shown especially at harvest with the meticulous picking and sorting of the grapes all done with thoroughness and passion to give respect to this prestigious appellation.
