Vignobles Raguenot, a family of independent winegrowers who work and live for one and only passion: the meticulous creation of wines.
Located in Saint-Caprais-de-Blaye, in the Blaye-Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, Château des Tourtes spreads over 70 hectares, 15 of which are dedicated to the production of white grapes: Sauvignon blanc (80%), Sémillon (15%) and Muscadelle (5%). The remaining part of the vineyard is dedicated to the red grapes: Merlot (72%), Cabernet Sauvignon (14%), Malbec (7%), Petit Verdot (6%) and Carménère (1%).
On a silicious-clay soil with a gravely subsoil, the Raguenot family elaborates a classic cuvee in white, red and rosé, as well as a prestige cuvee in red and white. The Attribut des Tourtes is the Vignobles Raguenot’s jewel, with a parcel selection to obtain the essence of Château des Tourtes’ savoir-faire.
In the appellation Haut Médoc, Château Haut Beyzac is located in Vertheuil, on 26 hectares.
Enjoying an exceptional geology with a clay-limestone soil, the vineyard is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, the preferred varietal in Medoc, as well as Merlot and Petit Verdot. Three distinct cuvees are imagined and elaborated according to different methods of vinification, maturation and blend of grape varieties. Today, Château Haut Beyzac offers three wines with all their subtlety, freshness and complexity.
Smooth, gourmet wines, but also prestigious wines made like grands crus, here is the range of Raguenot Vineyards!
