After discovering Château Rochebelle, your accompanying driver will take you to Château Franc-Mayne. Château Franc-Mayne has the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation of controlled origin, obtained during the 1954 classification of Saint-Émilion wines, and extends over more than 7 hectares. Ideally located on the plateau of Saint-Émilion, not far from prestigious castles. The vines are mainly planted on clay-limestone soil. The underground galleries are present on the upper part and extend over 2 hectares. Today, these galleries are used as barrel cellars. The visit of the barrel cellar is therefore very impressive.
Besides its great wine, Château Franc-Mayne also produces a second wine with younger vines and 100% Merlot called “Les Cèdres de Franc-Mayne”. For a few moments, dive into another world and discover this magnificent castle.
