Cap De Mourlin

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
Grand Cru Classé
Jacques Capdemourlin
The Capdemourlin family has owned vineyards in Saint-Émilion for nearly four centuries, as attested by a wine sales contract dating from 1647. In an unusual departure from practices at the time, this document mentions the place name of the vineyard and the name of the wine, one of the oldest in Saint-Émilion.

 In 1983, Jacques Capdemourlin, the present owner, reunited this estate that had been divided between his father and his uncle for many years. He also undertook a major renovation in order to introduce modern fermentation and ageing techniques (a new vat room,
new air-conditioned area for malolactic fermentation, and new barrel ageing cellar).

The 14-hectare vineyard is ideally situated on slopes north of the town of Saint-Émilion with clay-limestone and clay-siliceous soil.
Château Cap de Mourlin’s wine is both generous and extremely elegant, with a very expressive bouquet. It is one of the most highly-reputed wines of Saint-Émilion.
