CHÂTEAU TOUR SAINT PIERRE
TAKE PART IN THE REVIVAL OF A SAINT-ÉMILION GRAND CRU
A Bond investment secured by prestigious land in a renowned Bordeaux appellation.
Château Tour Saint Pierre is perfectly located on the northeastern slope of the Saint-Émilion locality. The 11.5 hectares that make up the vineyard are spread over a clay-silica plateau with a few shades of limestone. This range of terroirs enhances the expression of our Grand Cru.
A legacy of past centuries, Château Tour Saint Pierre has had time to evolve over its 3 centuries of history. Having belonged to the former Mayor of Saint-Émilion, Jacques Goudineau, and then passed through the hands of a foreign group, the wine estate became French again during the 2022 summer.
The Tour Saint Pierre vineyard, composed of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, is carefully cultivated without the use of herbicides or insecticides, and is harvested by hand in the traditional way. Our wine is carefully nurtured to express all the quintessence of its terroir.
Our Grand Cru is a complex wine with aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and raspberry, mingled with subtle notes of hazelnut and chocolate. The harmony of the grape varieties and the exceptional terroirs on which it is produced enable Tour Saint Pierre to create perfectly balanced, fine and elegant wines.
2022, CHÂTEAU TOUR SAINT PIERRE BECOMES FRENCH AGAIN
After 5 years in the hands of a foreign group, Château Tour Saint Pierre returns to French ownership in August 2022. Bought by Pierre-Yves Rigaux, Denis Chazarain took over the reins. Since then, the story of the estate has been the story of a whole team orchestrated by David Caillaud, the technical director. These passionate professionals apply their talent to an innovative approach that respects vines, people and the environment, to produce exceptional wines that reflect their terroir.
From Paris to Singapore, via Bahrain, Pierre-Yves Rigaux is a recognized figure in the world of investment and finance. Since 2022, he has owned 4 wine estates in the Bordeaux region.
Renowned for his expertise in management and business development, Denis Chazarain, a wine enthusiast, took over the management of Château Tour Saint Pierre in 2022.
The Bordeaux winemaker David Caillaud, who has been making wine for 30 years, pays particular attention to respecting the vines, people and the environment, to bring Château Tour Saint Pierre back to life.
2023, STRONG ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENTS
Château Tour Saint Pierre is committed to virtuous viticultural practices and soil health through a number of different commitments.
HVE level 3 certification
The Château Tour Saint Pierre vineyards have been certified "Haute Valeur Environnementale" (High Environmental Value) level 3 in 2022, and are subject to sustainable viticulture practices that promote biodiversity, while the production facilities are part of a global approach to environmental protection.
The winery will guarantee to maintain the level 3 High Environmental Value certification, with new audits scheduled for 2025 and 2028. The audits will be conducted by a certification organization approved by the French Ministry of Agriculture.
The Soil Regeneration Index
The estate is also committed to measuring the Regeneration Index developed by the scientific committee of "Pour une Agriculture du Vivant". This index is formalized by a score out of 100 points based on the principles of Tillage Intensity and Carbon & Nitrogen Cycles.
This Saint-Émilion Grand Cru is resolutely looking to the future through its commitment. And to ensure that it has a confident future, we are looking for partners with strong environmental values who are sensitive to the wines of this prestigious appellation.
