Château Vignot

• Maritime climate, heavily influenced by the close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde Estuary • Summers can be hot with occasional storms
• Excessive rainfall at harvest is the chief hazard, though St-Émilion and the rest of the right bank is drier than the Medoc (left bank)
• Winters are moderate
Grape Varieties
• True to form for a Saint-Émilion blend;  Merlot is the dominant variety planted with around a fourth of the vineyard to Cabernet Franc followed by a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon
• The blend mirror the ratios in the vineyard:  75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon .  These can change from year to year, but usually area round these proportions
• The vineyards expand across 25 acres, located in the foothills of the Côte de Saint-Émilion
• Vines range from 25 to 40 years of age
• The vineyard lies at the foot (foothills) of the Côte de Saint-Émilion • There is an ideal south west sun exposure, allowing the vines to capture the sun’s rays the majority of the day and into the evening hours
• Alluvial soils, predominantly of sandy clay and gravel persist through the 25 acre vineyard
