Domaines Bouteiller lies in the commune de Cussac-Fort Médoc, in the heart of the Haut-Médoc, and consists of three internationally known estates, Chateau Lanessan, Chateau Lachesnaye and Chateau de Sainte Gemme. Domaines Bouteiller extends over 380 hectares on the outskirts of the village of Saint Julien and on the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée Haut-Médoc ‘terroir’ and includes 80 hectares of vines, most of which are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, though Chateau Lanessan has some Cabernet Franc and Petit-Verdot.
The vines need special care throughout the year through pruning and “sécaillage”, or “tying up”, which add to the quality and typicity of Domaines Bouteiller wines. Every stage of winemaking takes place in the winery and the ageing cellars. Here, we carry out all the tasks required to produce a vintage wine – harvest, vinification, blending and bottling – with all the care that the “new-born infant” requires.
