Chateau Saint Christoly, Medoc stock photography samples, by Per Karlsson, BKWine.
Chateau Saint Christoly (a Cru Bourgeois according to the now defunct classification) is located in the northern part of the Médoc region, at the far en from the city of Bordeaux itself. Today it is run by the two young daughters of the Héraud family: Sandrine Héraud, in charge of marketing and sales, and Catherine Héraud, winemaker, in charge of the wine production. The vineyards extend over 29 hectares on gravel and clay-limestone. It is planted with vines of two of the classic Bordeaux varieties: merlot and cabernet sauvignon. The wine is fermented in concrete vats (painted in pink at the recent renovation!), and aged for 12 months in oak barrels. The sisters are using mainly French wood but are also experimenting with some other sources.
