Since the 18th century, Roc de Boissac has been one of the flagship of the appellation Puisseguin Saint-Emilion..
Established on one of the highest and the most picturesque peaks of the Saint-Émilion region (100 meters above the sea level), the estate benefits from a terroir competing with the most recognised Saint-Emilion.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Various winegrowers have left their mark on Roc de Boissac, all of them eager to perfect their production and nurture the vineyard.
Today, we are in reorganisation and we intend to completely stop chemical weeding and also to use exclusively the less toxical phitosanitary product for human and environment.

In other words, we foresee an integrated farming to respect the next generations.

 

Our vine and our actions in the vineyard

Our vineyard covers 11 hectares on the Bordeaux right bank in AOP Puisseguin Saint-Emilion.

THE VINEYARD OF PUISSEGUIN

Sitting on top the rock, the vineyard follows the undulating terrain and benefits from a chalky-clay terroir which is particularly good for cultivating vines.

  • Surface: 11 hectares
  • Grape varieties
    • 77% merlot
    • 23% cabernet franc
  • Average age of the vines: 36 years old
  • Planting density: 6,000 stocks/hectares

    All the actions lead in the vineyard aim to obtain the most ripped and healthiest grapes. Besides the classical operation of pruning and lifting, we also make careful disbudding and defoliating of the vine.
