Vintages: 2018 and 2020
The Château Vernous was created in 1749. It is located in the north of the Médoc between the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic Ocean. Its privileged geographical position and the chateau’s ashlar architecture ensure it a rank worthy of the great Medocs. During the 1830’s revolution, the château was mainly a hunting lodge and belonged to Mr R. Bernard..

The Médoc appellation
The Médoc appellation concerns the northern part of the Médoc vineyards and covers an area of 4,900 hectares. It concentrates the majority of the “crus bourgeois” and “crus artisans”. The soils of the Médoc are mostly brown clay-limestone and clay-sand with some limestone outcrops on certain terroirs. Merlot plays an important part in the blend of red wines, complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Médoc wines are fine and complex, with notes of red and black fruits. They age well over time due to their barrel ageing and can be kept for 3 to 10 years.
