Winemaker in Saint-Emilion, Jean-Marie Carrille purchased Chateau Poupille in 1967 and gave the management to his son Philippe Carrille in 1989, the 5th generation of wine producers. Poupille is located East of Bordeaux, 6 miles away from Saint-Emillion in Sainte Colombe. The estate is composed of old vines aged 35 years old in average. The vines face south at the top of hills. In local dialect Poupille means << end of the hill >> "Le Petit PETRUS" The wines were produced from a careful selection of best grapes coming from the oldest vines. Its production with low yields contributes to the development of a more concentrated wine, more suitable for aging in oak barrels. This wine is produced without sulfur.
