You will find Chateau Grace Dieu les Menuts vineyards on the main road between Libourne and the town of St Emilion, on the right hand side of the road. There are several "Grace Dieu":s so you have to be careful. It is a 16 hectare vineyard planted with 65% merlot, 30% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon. It is owned and managed by the winemaker couple Thierry and Odile Pilotte Audier.

It is a medium sized Saint Emilion property with the right to carry the mention Grand Cru on the lable. Winemaking is traditional: pressing with a vertical basket press, fermentation and vinification in concrete vats, aging in oak barrels. But it is balanced by modern technology and techniques: sorting the grapes at the harvest to obtain optimum raw material, thermo-regulated tanks etc. Depending on the vintage, a protion of the wine is aged in one (or two) year old barriques to give it a balanced character.
