Château Haut-Marbuzet: Vineyards

The vineyards of Château Haut-Marbuzet lie on the edge of the hamlet of Marbuzet, and the very prominent sign is still visible today. They are located on the same seam of gravel that runs beneath Château Cos d’Estournel and Château Cos Labory in the very southern-most part of the appellation, and runs up north to Château Montrose. Beneath the gravelly clay there is the classic calcaire à astéries, hard limestone rich in marine fossils which can be found both here in St Estèphe as well as in St Emilion.

Today the vineyard covers 61 hectares and is planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, a significant area of Merlot which accounts for 40%, and Cabernet Franc making up the total with 10%.
