Château de Barbe vineyards
The vineyard covers 66 hectares divided into 41 hectares in Côtes de Bourg, chalky-clay soil over limestone rich in starfish fossils to produce Château de Barbe. Merlot is mostly planted on these soils with more shallow rooting and greater water retention allowing optimum maturity.
12 hectares in Bordeaux Supérieur as Chapelle de Barbe and 13 hectares in Bordeaux as Chapelle de Brivazac. These appellations are produced on alluvial soils along the Gironde called “palus”.
