Vignobles Jean-Bernard Saby & Fils

Château Hauchat Fronsac

Bordeaux :: France

http://www.vignobles-saby.com/

Estate::

Located in the commune of Saint-Aignan, to the west of neighbouring Pomerol and Saint Émilion, the Hauchat property was re-acquired in 1973 by the Saby family, who have made wine in the region for eight generations.
On the high plateau of Saint-Aignan, the Château is in one of the finest growing areas of the Fronsac appellation. Two of its most distinctive features are the homogeneity of the well drained clay-limestone soil and perfect exposure to the sun. In addition to its ideal terroir, Château Hauchat’s success is also due to Merlot, its single grape variety.
