- Just a few klicks down the road from the town of St. Emilion, Andre Chatenoud organically farms the 12 acre property that his father purchased in 1927. Using natural yeasts, bottling with little filtration and no fining, Chatenoud only minimally intervenes with his old vine (up to 90 years!) Merlot, letting the deeply rooted, limestone nuanced fruit do most of the talking.
