This vineyard and its late-19th century château make a very harmonious picture. Built on the remains of a Gallo-Roman villa, Château Laville has always produced renowned wines (see the first Féret of 1865). It has belonged to the Faye family since 1956 and the vineyard has been fully rebuilt owing to various frosts.
Ideally located on the central plateau of Saint Sulpice, it covers 30 hectares in a single stretch and benefits from excellent soils with a high density of alios, resulting in rich, powerful wines.
The wine is matured in the purest Bordeaux tradition, with long vatting periods and maturing in oak barrels.
Aside from the emblematic Bordeaux Supérieur Château Laville, the estate also produces a most enjoyable rosé, Clairet de Château Laville, as well as a second Bordeaux wine in certain years, called Château Moulin de Raymond.
Since 1994, The Cuvée Eximius has completed the range: Made from very old vines, this wine is vinified and matured apart from the rest, using jealousy guarded winemaking skills.
Le vieillissement en fûts de chêne ajoute à la qualité.
