CHATEAU CAP DE MOURLIN, ST EMILION GRAND CRU
BACKGROUND
The Capdemourlin family gave its name to a small hamlet where descendants have continued to live over the past four centuries. Château Cap de Mourlin is the
oldest of our wines estates. In 1983, Jacques Capdemourlin pieced together this vineyard, which for many years had been divided between his father and uncle. Considerable renovation work was carried out to equip the estate with the most up-to-date technology for wine-making and maturing (construction of a new vat house, creation of an air-conditioned area for malo-lactic fermentations and a barrel storehouse). With the wines of Château Cap de Mourlin, we have always endeavoured to convey the excellence of our terroir.
