Founded in 1929, Chateau Pipeau is located two miles from the town of Saint-Emilion. Owned by the Mestreguilhem family for three generations, Richard Mestreguilhem balances traditional methods with modern winemaking techniques to create nuanced, wines of place. The vines are on average 50 years old, and Richard practices cluster thinning to limit yields, leaf stripping to optimize the ripening process and carefully sorts the fruit during harvest.
Technical notes
Fermented in stainless steel with 5-6 weeks of gentle maceration and frequent pump overs, the wine is then gently pressed to barrel.

Producer
Located in the center of Saint-Laurent-des-Combes, 3 kilometres from Saint-Emilion, Château Pipeau consists of thirty hectares of very well-exposed parcels of vines.

The vineyard, growing mostly around the Chateau, comes under the communes of Saint-Laurent-des-Combes, Saint-Hippolyte and Saint-Emilion.

Chateau Pipeau has remained exclusively a family concern since 1929. Thus, three generations of wine-producers have passed down their inherited savoir-faire. Today it is the children of Monsieur Pierre Mestreguilhem, Richard and Dominique, who run the vineyard.

This Saint-Emilion is a fine, velvety color, has plenty of body yet maintains great suppleness, and is perfect for ageing.
