Classified Cru Bourgeois in 1932, Château Picard, in the heart of the village of Saint-Estèphe, has always been considered one of the best of this appellation.
The last of the properties acquired by Mähler-Besse (1997), this 8 hectares estate was chosen for its development potential and its average surface area, allowing complete control of its production.
Since the acquisition of Château Picard, Mähler-Besse, who has renovated the Napoleon III-style cellars, has endowed the property with an efficient wine-making tool, with entry of the harvest by gravity.
Its exceptional terroir with a clayey tendency, characteristic of Saint-Estèphe, presents soils loaded with calcified remains of cockles and sea urchins.
This vineyard with a high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon produces finely smoked and spicy wines of very good class.
