Little story

The vineyards of Chateau Martinat is located on the commune of LANSAC, in the heart of the Côtes de Bourg, in a hilly landscape near the river: the Gironde. The latter has a definite influence on the sweetness of the climate and the period of sunshine of this region.
Chateau Martinat comprises 10 hectares of a particular soil, characterized by the presence of veins of small graves and red and brown clays and a precious quality asset value to the maturity of our grapes and the density of our wines. The age of vines is 40 years on average, the dominant grape variety is Merlot 70% Cabernet Sauvignon 20% Malbec and 10% (historical variety).
The control of the vineyard remains manual: debudding, leafing, green harvesting and hand hand picking of the harvest. This work is done with care and attention, with the concern to create each year a qualitative millesime.
Our perception of quality : A very good quality and excellent ripeness of the grapes at the dawn of the harvest remains the essential parameters to produce a good vintage. The challenge is repeated at each harvest. We wish to respect each year for what it offers , without ever trying to change the millesime expression, but by printing a style specific to the Chateau Martinat. Our wines can be tasted in their youth and maintain their personality by aging, so you can enjoy them for many years.
