Situated in Belvès de Castillon, within the Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux appellation, 6 kilometres to the east of Mangot, Château La Brande has 21 hectares in a single stretch, including 16 hectares of vines.
A rugged, hilly vineyard, in a wild bucolic setting among woods and forest.
With 63 metres of variation in altitude, between 15 and 78m, the vineyard is on a clay-limestone hillside facing due south with good slopes (up to 17%).
This geography facilitates natural drainage and offers optimum sun exposure for the entire vineyard.
It consists of 10 plots with different soil and climate conditions: warm at the hilltops, dry and well-ventilated at the foot of cooler hills.
Unlike Mangot, clay predominates here over the limestone and contains veins of flint. This terroir gives the wine more roundness and charm, allowing us to make succulent wines .
