History & Geography
A fabulous terroir: a sandy gravelly plateau on the third terrace of the Garonne River, where vines flourish. With its soil impregnated with the woody scents of the Landaise forest, the Tourteau Chollet estate, in the heart of Graves, enjoys an idyllic location producing velvety and voluptuous wines, which are full of elegance… 56 hectares of the 63 hectares of our estate are planted with red grapes (45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec), and 7 hectares with white grapes (90% Sauvignon blanc and 10% Semillon). Since its foundation in 1760 by Mr Etienne (Royal Notary), the estate has been recognised as a producer of one of the best Cru from Graves. The property rooted in the municipality of Arbanats is actually a perfect balance between traditions and modernity. The implementation of a wine producing tool did not affect the soul of the estate. On the contrary.
