Saint emilion Grand Cru
The Average age of the vines is around 45 years and is composed of 3 hectares. The plots allow us to produce Château L’Etoile de Clotte, that is situated in the area of Saint Etienne de Lisse on the clay hillsides with a south-facing exposure, that benefits from a perfect natural drainage.
The grape variety proportions are the following: Merlot 70%, Cabernet Franc 30%, with a plantation density of 5500 plants. Our traditional method of agriculture ensures the preservation of the environment. After the pruning of January, the binding and folding of the canes, the de-budding and leaf thinning are undertaken each year with quality of the future wine as the objective. Our yield is around 45 hl per hectare that permits us to obtain a perfect maturity and concentration.
