Little Switzerland in Côtes de Bourg Region

Château La Tuilière has the distinction of being one of the first wineries in the Côtes de Bourg region. It is known affectionately as the “little Switzerland” of the Gironde. La Tuilière is in the village of Saint-Ciers-de-Canesse, on the Gironde estuary around 40 kilometers from Bordeaux. The estate comprises 13 vineyards over 20 hectares of clay-limestone soil. Currently, the vineyards host 60% of Merlot, 35% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% of Malbec. Moreover, it produces three reds and rosé for the Dumont, Dorland and Clauzel label. In addition, there are plans to add cabernet franc in the future.

“Quality First, Quantity Second” is the Philosophy of Château La Tuilière

With a commitment to quality before quantity, they focus on methods. It’s an approach that has brought many medals and much acclaim. The density of vines varies depending on the different parts of the vineyard. While the average age of the vines is between 25 and 30 years, again with a view to quality control. Additionally, the vines have been raised in order to benefit from more sunlight.

Vinification Methods at Château La Tuilière

Vinification takes place in traditional, smaller concrete vats. The cellars are partly underground, a feature characteristic of the region. A 3–6 week period of cold pre-fermentation maceration takes place prior to vinification. The ageing takes place in French oak barrels for their more traditional wines. However, for the more modern styles, they use oak chips in thermo-regulated containers. Indeed, it preserves the light nature of the wine demonstrating the company’s willingness to keep up with and respond to market demands. Discover the unique atmosphere of Château La Tuilière and indulge in their exquisite wines.
