The vineyard of Chateau Dutruch Grand Poujeaux is composed of 30 hectares, most of them situated on the Garonne’s gravel hill, which provides the exquisite reputation of the wines of the Grand Poujeaux. The gravel soils here are highly beneficial for the vines; especially as it ensures excellent natural drainage and acts as a natural heat reflector from the sun on the grapes. It allows the roots of the vine to penetrate deep in the earth, revealing the varying characteristics of the many layers of subsoil that form our unique terroir. Furthermore as a meager soil, gravel causes the vines to produce fewer but more concentrated berries. This is good for the overall quality of the yielded fruit and the future of our wines.
