Since its creation around 1760, Château Tourteau Chollet has benefited from the quality of its terroir and has been recognized as one of the greatest Graves growths since 1943. A fabulous terroir: a gravelly-sandy plateau on the third terrace of the Garonne, where the vine loves to bloom. On this terroir imbued with the woody scents of the Landes forest, the property benefits from an idyllic location in the heart of the Graves, to produce silky and gourmet wines, all in elegance.
To enter the world of Château Tourteau Chollet is to discover the deep convictions that animate a property: respect for the typicality of the terroirs, the quality of the wines, the confidence in a bottle that characterizes the know-how of great wines.
