Château SAINT CHRISTOPHE

is located in the heart of the Médoc peninsula, in Saint-Christoly de Médoc. This town, 75 kilometers north of Bordeaux, is bordered by the Gironde Estuary, where the vines find a particularly pleasant climate to thrive. Since 1755, generations of the same family have followed one another on this property. Patrick Gillet’s ancestors chose Saint Christophe as the name of the castle because, until 1770, it was the original name of the town, later renamed Saint-Christoly du Médoc. Since then, the same passion lives on the owners who have succeeded one another. Work in the vines on the banks of the Gironde is above all a family affair.
Today, SCEA Vignobles Cruchon et Fils takes over the estate and, with his experience, Frédéric Cruchon will honor the tradition of Château Saint Christophe
