The unique Chateau Clarisse estate
At Chateau Clarisse, owners Didier and Olivia Le Calvez have been making wine in Saint-Emilionnais, one of the top regions of Bordeaux for viticulture. The beautiful property is surrounded by vineyards, and a calm stream separates the place from the town. The owners started research in 2007 before acquiring this estate for making Puisseguin wines of top-level. Since 2019, the wine is certified organic, and the owners pay special attention to the respect of biodiversity.
Terroir around the winery
The property has 21 hectares of vineyards growing on clay-limestone soil, perfect for the cultivation of wines. The presence of limestone and the right microclimate is vital to viticulture here. 70% of the area is planted with Merlot while Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Carmenere also grow. Workers handpick the best grapes and take them to the winery for making red wine. All rules and regulations for organic viticulture are followed here.
High-quality Bordeaux wine
Château Clarisse produces only red wines on two differents appellations “Côtes de Castillon” and “Puisseguin Saint Emilion.” Each year each vintage has some special notes and qualities. However, overall, one will find the true essence and character of Bordeaux in their wine. The owners work hard to preserve the health of vines and protect the environment. Biodiversity is an important part of the company, and they go the extra mile to make sure everything is organic and sustainable at the winery.
