An exceptional terroir
The Château La Bastienne, classified Premier Grand Cru Montagne in 1928, before the appellation Montagne becomes Montagne-Saint-Emilion, has been acquired Pierre-Emmanuel's grandfather in 1945.
Located on the Southwest hillside of the plateau of Néac, close to Lalande-de-Pomerol, the vineyard of La Bastienne benefits from an exceptional soil, marls with clayey-silty texture, gently sloping which assures a natural drainage. The marly grounds are the best of the Bordeaux area to get great red wines, concentrated, fine and complex, with a long ageing potential.
Fourth generation of vine-grower, Pierre-Emmanuel Janoueix took over the family vineyard in 2000, with for ambition to perpetuate the quality and to prove that Montagne-Saint-Emilion can also be a great wine.
Some vines were pulled up and the missing stocks were planted with the most adapted vines from a local selection. So, on 17 ha of property, only 12,5 ha are planted. The yields were reduced by 15 to 20 %. The wine storehouse has totally been renewed and equipped in thermoregulation.
Thanks to all these efforts, the wine of the Château La Bastienne, former Premier Grand Cru Montagne, became again a reference of Saint-Emilion.
