This product is currently sold out

Situated in the heart of St Emilion appellation between the villages of Vignonet and St Sulpice de Faleyrens, Chateau de la Cour is another small estate where the change of generation has seen a quantum leap in quality.
The young Hugues Delacour came to St Emilion and bought this small property in 1995 after studying in both Bordeaux and the Rhone.
His philosophy is simple: he wants to make the best wine possible from this site, a wine that shows real complexity of both aroma and flavour, while retaining its identity.

To this aim he has implemented strict measures in the vineyard regarding pruning, leaf plucking, yields, triage with sole aim of bringing healthy fruit to the winery. The fruit undergoes a gentle crushing, temperature controlled fermentation and long maceration (16 to 21 days), before being put into barriques for 12 months.
