The Capdemourlin family has owned property in Saint-Emilion for four hundred years, as evidenced by a wine sale dating from 1647.
She has, exceptionally, given her name to the place where she lives as well as to her vineyard, one of the oldest of Saint-Emilion. In 1983, Jacques Capdemourlin, the current owner, reconstituted the farm, which had been divided between his father and his uncle for a long time. Important renovation works have been carried out for the best of the technology at the service of the vinification and the breeding of this vintage (construction of a vat room, an air-conditioned room reserved for the malolactic fermentation and a barrel cellar).
The vineyard of 14 hectares of vines is ideally located on the northern slopes of Saint-Emilion, where it benefits from a clay-limestone and clay-siliceous soil. The wine of Château Cap de Mourlin is distinguished by its generosity combined with a great finesse and a very developed bouquet which make it one of the most esteemed wines of Saint-Emilion.
