TERROIR

The 'terroir' of Château Berthenon is highly influenced by the proximity of the Gironde Estuary and the Ocean. This micro climate allows our grapes to reach their optimum ripeness.

Our soils are the result of ancient history : sediments deposited by the Ocean  millions of years ago, make up the limestone  base, now covered by blue clays, favoring the aromatic expression of our wines.

Due to this exceptional 'terroir', the Château Berthenon has been mentioned several times from 1868 to 1949 as  Cru Bourgeois  of Blaye area  by the Féret Editions.
