Producer: Situated to the south-east of Bordeaux in the Graves region, the vineyards of Ch. Tourteau Chollet lie on a warm, sandy plateau, surrounded by the scent of the pine forests of Les Landes. Wines have been made here since the early 19th century, and the new owners from 2001 have installed a state-of-the-art winery and created a fully sustainable vineyard using few chemicals. In 2012 they gained HVE3 (High Environment Value level 3), reflecting their biodiversity and phytosanitary strategies.
