Description

Chateau Tour Sieujean

Château Tour Sieujean is a family wine estate located in the commune of Saint-Laurent-du-Médoc, in the south-west of the Pauillac appellation. Its vines cover 8 hectares in Pauillac and Haut-Médoc. This domain is one of the very last domains with a family dimension among the many Grands Crus of Pauillac – there are 18 in total and represent 85% of the area of ​​the appellation.

The 10th century feudal tower watches over this vineyard planted on sumptuous gravelly hilltops and worked like a garden. The mild temperatures and the sunshine due to the local micro-climate allow the vines of Château Tour Sieujean to reach good maturity to produce wines for laying down. We work the vines and produce wines in accordance with Médoc tradition.
