Château Vieux Chaigneau

Château Vieux Chaigneau became part of the Milhade Estates in November 2014, purchased by Charlotte (agricultural engineer and enologist) and her husband Valentin Généré-Milhade (also an agricultural engineer).

The vineyard is located near Néac, on a south-facing plateau, with a unique holding. The Château possesses one of the best terroirs in the Lalande de Pomerol appellation situated in the continuation of the Pomerol plateau.

On a surface of 6 hectares composed of clay and sandy-limestone soil, 3 grape varieties can be found: Merlot (75%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Cabernet Franc (10%).

With an annual production of 40 000 bottles, vinification is done traditionally in thermo-regulated tanks, a 4 week maceration period followed by 18 months of maturing, of which 12 is done in oak barrels. The outcome is fruity wines, with a lot of elegance and finesse. Delightful to drink today, but can also be preserved for later enjoyement.
