Clos
Saint-Vincent

Saint Vincent is the patron saint of winegrowers and protector of vines.
Just below the picturesque village of Saint Emilion, the Clos Saint-Vincent team manages 16 hectares of vines to produce three wines: Clos Saint-Vincent, Château Moine-Vieux and Château La Rose-Bigaroux. Three vineyards, each offering a delicate expression of this world-famous terroir.

Our History

Just below the picturesque village of Saint Emilion – which was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in December 1999 – the Clos Saint-Vincent team manages 16 hectares of vines to produce three wines: Clos Saint-Vincent, Château Moine Vieux and Château La Rose Bigaroux.
The proximity of the medieval village gives the estate considerable charm.

Its name is another nod to the region’s rich past: Saint Vincent is the patron saint of winegrowers and protector of vines. The property’s vineyard consists of a homogeneous terroir with a vein of gravel running through it, which gives the tannins a silky character. This unusual feature of the soil is the reason behind the pure expression of the estate’s three wines. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon complement each other in the polished dialogue that characterizes grand cru wines.

OUR EXPERTISE

The vines on the hillside are planted on gravelly-siliceous soil (quaternary alluvial formations), typical of the best right-bank properties. An average of 25 years-old, the vines are 78% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. Sustainable agriculture methods have been adopted with a view to preserving Clos Saint-Vincent's winegrowing heritage. Optimal conditions for ripening are created through rigorous canopy management.

From the Vineyard to the Winery

After harvesting, the grapes are meticulously sorted on their arrival at the winery. Vinification is traditional, and is sometimes preceded by cold prefermentation maceration in temperature-controlled vats. A proportion of the wine is then transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months. A third of the barrels are renewed each year. Clos Saint-Vincent’s winery has been open to visitors since 2020 and its wines can be purchased at the property.

OUR COMMITMENTS

Clos Saint-Vincent has been committed to an Environmental Management System (EMS) since 2016 and quickly established efficient management, enabling collective ISO 14001 certification to be obtained in 2017 as part of the first EMS association for Bordeaux wines, and High Environmental Value (HEV) certification for the 2016 vintage. We have set up indicators to monitor the impact of our activities and reduce our environmental footprint with the reduction of inputs, waste sorting and control of discharges, late mowing and ploughing as necessary.

« Our commitment at Clos Saint-Vincent is fuelled by the same objectives as for the Group's other properties, i.e. an approach that is mindful our company’s social and environmental responsibilities, with a governance based on sustainability. ».

Our Wines

Château Moine-Vieux

A soft, charming, fruity wine. Generous texture on the palate with long, well-integrated tannins accompanied by notes of liquorice. An equally harmonious finish. A straightforward wine, typical of the appellation, which can be enjoyed now or cellared for a few years.

Our Wines

Clos Saint-Vincent

The technical team at Clos Saint-Vincent makes every effort to respect the terroir and produce the eponymous wine in the purest Bordeaux tradition. Slow maceration enables the preservation of the fruit flavours necessary for the harmony of barrel-aged wines. All of these precautions enhance the controlled balance of the wine, whose elegant palate expresses notes of red and black fruit, with enveloping tannins on the finish. A voluptuous wine at a modest price.

Our Wines

Château La Rose-Bigaroux

The glittering crimson colour promises a generous, flavourful wine. The well-balanced palate offers notes of black fruit and undergrowth and a full-bodied finish with well-developed tannins. A dense, straightforward, sincere wine with a cheerful character. Its panache has instant, lasting appeal.
