Château PLATON ROUGE - The vineyard

                                   Bordeaux supérieur

 

The plots, that have an average age of 40 years and that are spread out over 11 hectares, allow us to craft Château PLATON.  They are located in the area of Sainte Radegonde, on a plateau at an altitude of 116 meters in a clay and limestone soil.

 

The grape variety proportions are the following : Merlot 65%, Cabernet Franc 15%, Cabernet Sauvignon 15%, Côt (Malbec) 5% with a plantation density of 5000 plants per hectare. 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 50 hl per hectare that permits us to obtain a perfect maturity and concentration.
