Vieux Château des Combes is located in Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, just five kilometres away from the
historic village of Saint-Emilion. Its name leads us to think that wine was already being made here in the
17th century when the Benedictine abbey was built and vines were planted, scattered around the buildings,
growing on little hills and valleys (known as combes). The château today is surrounded by vineyards,
copses, trees and a half-hectare pond. It has kept the calm dignity of a spot for quiet contemplation that
is perfect for making a Saint-Emilion grand cru of the highest quality.
