Chateau Puy Castera.

The owner and winemaker, Alix Mares, deserves plaudits for producing this wonderful medium bodied red wine. It cleanses the palate with berries and tobacco flavours

Alix Mares

Located between Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe, the 28-hectare Château Puy Castera vineyard is owned by Alix Marès, a very dynamic young woman who is a fully qualified agronomic engineer. Alix follows the traditional Médoc methods of wine-making.

 

The winery was started in 1975 by Alix’s father, Henri Marès, who worked closely with oenologist Professor Emile Peynaud to build a special cellar which uses the gentle power of gravity throughout the wine-making process. This gravitational technology is in use from the moment the grapes reach the cellar until the wine is poured into barrels. This minimises grape damage and allows her fruit to shine.

 

Alix pays extreme attention to the soil by practicing the concept of ‘intelligent pest management’ in the vineyards. She is advised by one of the Médoc’s best oenologists, Jacques Boissenot who has worked with Chateaux Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild and Palmer amongst others!

Chateau Puy Castera

Our vineyard of 28 hectares respects the traditional vineyard of Médoc with a majority of Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet-Franc, Malbec and Petit-Verdot.In 1973, when the Vignoble was created, Henri Marès and his children followed the advice of the famous oenologists MM. Peynaud-Boissenot. Today, the castle is managed by the descendants of Henri Marès.
