Château Treytins, France

Château Treytins is perhaps better known for its Lalande de Pomerol wine but since 1998 it has also produced a Montagne St-Emilion the largest of Saint-Emilion's satellite appellations.

Planted on gravelly soil located in part on a hillside, the average age of the vines is about 25 years. This vineyard is planted mostly with Merlot with a small amount of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.


The yields at Château Treytins are limited by Double Guyot pruning as well as bud removal. Leaf removal and crop thinning are carried out too when necessary. Harvest is by hand.


Grapes are carefully sorted on a vibrating sorting table followed by a long maceration in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine the undergoes a long maturation partly in oak barrels, in air conditioning cellars, and then bottled at the Château.
