The Chateau De Chastelet winery covers an area of 17 acres. It sits on at the edge of the Bordeaux appellation. The winery is only just south of the Bordeaux town. But, most of the north and northeast of the town produce all the well-celebrated red wines featured as Bordeaux. Valerie and Sylvere own the winery. Sylvere previously worked as a chef and Valerie was an interior designer. They bought the estate in 2008 and convert to biodynamic practices. Most of the wines at Chateau De Chastelet vineyard are 30-50 years old. Some are even 70 years old. The winery produces early 17,000 bottles annually.
Their primary grape varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. They also grow Petit Verdot and Malbec. The Chastelet follows biodynamic principles, which are extremely rare in the Bordeaux region. The Chastelet wines feature a cedar wood, spice or earthy aroma. Some also feature a strong dark baking chocolate aroma. These wines smell less fruity. The Chastelet wines have a taste of raspberries and bright tart cherry. They have a clear, smooth mid-palate. The overall wine body is light, and you won’t find much tanning.
