L'Argilus du Roi
L’ARGILUS du ROI’s 5 hectare winery was established in 1996 by a winemaker for the ROTHSCHILD domaines in Pauillac, and in 2004, the domain was enhanced with the addition of modern buildings.
In 2010, the majority stake was purchased by Group ARINC SA, an Aeronautic and Defense firm led by its president Martial MIGNET. Mr. MIGNET, a pilot and viticulture enthusiast has taken the responsibility for the management of the domain. The winery itself is rooted in the terroirs nobles of St ESTEPHE, bringing together the marriage of tradition and modernity.
Stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks. A climate controlled wine cellar in which, each year, 40% of the vintage is stored in new French oak barrels. A manual harvest. A selection process that allows our winemakers to select only the highest quality grapes, sorted by variety and produced using traditional, yet sustainable methods of agriculture. These are the testimonies that give voice to the attention given to our wines.
Ranked among the smallest chateaux of the appellation, this little gem produces a limited number of bottles of our fine wine, which year after year, demonstrates an elegance and quality worthy of its larger neighbors.
