Châteaux de Haut-Coulon
Castel Estates and Vineyards are run by three generations working hand in hand. The first - Pierre Castel’s generation - ensure that the company’s founding values are never compromised. The second, featuring Alain and Philippe Castel, specify the strategic focus for the properties at all levels. And the third generation continue the adventure: Sophie Castel and Verena Raoux manage external relations while Alexis Raoux is responsible for Sustainable Development policies.
Haut-Coulon is a project inspired by Burgundy, such as using punch-downs to obtain the density they are looking for within their wines: inky. The soils that surround this Estate are composed of limestone and montmorillonite clay, proving to be very drainable. The vineyard is composed of 60 % Merlot, 20 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 % Petit Verdot, and is Terra Vitis accredited since 2012.
