Chateau Sainte-Marie. by Stephane Dupuch

The renown of Château Sainte-Marie goes back several centuries, when the owner used to supply the Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure (one of the most ancient abbeys in France, located just 4 km from the Château).

 

Set right in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region, this magnificent estate is located in an excellent geographical position. The south-facing vineyard stretches over two very sunny hilltops which are among the highest points in the Gironde region. Old vines with low yields, including a one hundred-year-old parcel of Semillon, guarantee top quality production.

 

The Dupuch family believe that wine is a history of time, from the planting of the vines, through every year's harvest, to the time needed to make the wine, and allow it to develop, to grow in the barrels. In industrial production, many things can be done to speed up and regularise the process, but at Chateau Sainte Marie, they believe the most important virtue is patience

Press Reviews

"There's a touch of sweet fruit here to balance the dry tannins nicely, crisp and clean, worth a punt." Raymond Blake, Food and Wine Magazine

"A delicious modern style of Bordeaux with lightly creamy cassis fruits and a smooth easy finish." John Wilson, The Irish Times
