Eric Boissenot is the winemaker who shares the estate's vision of wine-making and their attachment to the tradition and the terroir. He is one of the ten greatest oenologist-consultants in the world.

This Cru Bourgeois property has well-placed vineyards right at the northern end of the Médoc, just north of Saint-Estephe, on deep gravel and clay-limestone soils.

The first vines were planted on an excellent terroir composed of gravel on the edge of the Gironde estuary in Jau Dignac Loirac, as well as clay and limestone soils in Queyrac and sandy-clay soils in Gaillan. In 2012, the vineyard was extended on a deep gravelly soil along the Gironde estuary, in Valeyrac, giving rise to truly elegant fine wines.

Today, the vineyard which spreads over 60 hectares and 4 wine-growing villages/communes, offers a rich diversity of terroirs.

One to Watch.

Château Saint-Hilaire, recognised as a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, has taken positive steps towards sustainability within the Médoc.

The estate, managed by Adrien Uijttewaal and his wife Fabienne, focuses on environmentally mindful practices. Their 50-hectare vineyard adheres to 'agriculture raisonnée', certified by TERRA VITIS, which suggests an effort towards sustainable farming while being conscious of their environmental impact.

The incorporation of Blonde d’Aquitaine cattle on natural pastures indicates a move towards a more diversified and potentially sustainable ecosystem. Their livestock practices bear the certification "La Signature des Eleveurs Girondins", which could reflect responsible animal husbandry.

Sustainability efforts are also seen in the family's approach to education and heritage, with their daughter Elise being involved in the business, indicating an intention to preserve and pass on sustainable farming values.

While the vineyard does not hold an organic certification, which points to limitations in their sustainability journey, their current practices do reflect an engagement with sustainable principles.

Cellaring: Drinking well now, will develop over 15 years.

Vinification: The vinification involves traditional methods; grapes are fermented by variety, geographical origin, and quality in stainless steel vats with electronic temperature control. The fermenting wine is pumped over twice and the cap is punched down every day. The maceration lasts 21 days on average. The blending is an especially important stage and takes place with the collaboration of Eric Boissenot, the estate’s consultant œnologist. The wine is then aged for one year from the December following the harvest in 600-liter oak barrels, one-third of which are replaced every year.
