The 100-acre Château Saint-Sulpice estate is situated in the eponymous village in northern Entre-Deux-Mers, just south of St. Emilion and 14 miles northeast of the city of Bordeaux. The property is planted mainly with Merlot and is very carefully tended by owner-winemaker Pierre Dubergé and his son Christophe. Their spotless cellar has been recently modernized, including a battery of stainless steel tanks.
Made with the same methods of utmost quality as those used to produce classified growth Bordeaux, Château Saint-Sulpice represents an extraordinary value and rare quality.
This wine is vinified as if it were a “classified growth”: Each parcel and grape variety is vinified separately. Traditional Bordeaux vinification in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. Alcoholic fermentation for 8 to 10 days at 82 degrees Fahrenheit. Maceration for 3 weeks followed by ageing in tanks for 18 months before bottling. This approach emphasizes the natural red fruit characters
