Château Poitevin

A relatively young Château by Bordeaux standards, having only been established in the 1950s, Château Poitevin has always been family run. Since 1991 it has been under the charge of Guillaume Poitevin, who took over when he was just 18 years old, and under whom it flourished. Doomed though the system would prove to be, Château Poitevin was one of only five Châteaux that were selected for the 2003 Cru Bourgeois re-classification. The vineyard now consists of 41 hectares of vines planted on gravel banks at the northern tip of the Médoc which is slightly cooler and therefore later ripening than other more southerly Bordeaux regions. The Château is like so many of the vineyards in Bordeaux now and is making efforts to be more environmentally friendly, works in 'lutte raisonnée, certified by Terra Vitis. On top of this, Guillaume Poitevin’s desire to avoid under-ripe, tannic grapes requires much hand harvesting and careful attention.
