Presentation of our château
Located in the commune of Saint-Sauveur near Pauillac and its famous classified growths, this property, which used to be made up of scattered parcels from the former properties of Ramage, La Bâtisse and Tourteran, is now a single block.
In the center of the property stands an 18th century Carthusian monastery. The mutual insurance company MACIF, which has owned the property since 1986, has made great efforts to improve and maintain the vineyard as well as the vat room and the cellars in the Bordeaux tradition.
Total surface area: 76 hectares of which 60 hectares of vines in production.
Grape varieties: 49% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit-Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc.
Average age of the vineyard: 37 years.
Soil: sandy and gravelly.
Density: 8 350 vines per hectare.
Harvest: mechanical and manual.
Maturing: 12 months in oak barrels, 1/3 of which are new.
Production: 250 000 bottles.
Type of bottle: heavy Bordeaux.
Director of operations: Jean-Paul THIBAUT.
Consulting engineer: Georges PAULI.
The motto of the property could be summarized as follows: Rigor and Quality. We practice here a low pruning and a thinning out of the leaves before the harvest, in order to obtain a better maturity.
The harvest is mechanical and manual with a sorting of the grapes in the cellar. The traditional vinification, with a personalized follow-up of each vat, is carried out in thermoregulated vats, followed by a vatting at 28°, from 12 to 21 days. 30% of the harvest undergoes malolactic fermentation in new barrels, which gives the wine finesse and suppleness.
The property produces a second wine, called L'Enclos de Ramage,R de Ramage and a delicious rosé, La Rosée de Ramage. Each year the wines of Ramage la Bâtisse are rewarded by medals and citations in the best guides and specialized magazines, both in France and abroad.
