Chateau Cablanc is set up on the hillsides of the commune of Saint-Pey de Castets in the Entre-Deux-Mers region.
It is impossible to come to the Château Cablanc without seeing the remarkable site that surrounds it: the verdant valley of Gamage, made of a magnificent landscape of vines, crops, livestock and forests. The vestiges recovered attest it: the valley was already inhabited during the Prehistory, then to the time of the Romans. In the Middle Ages, it was the rise of the region, especially thanks to the presence of the English, who built churches, castles and strong houses.
Many cultures, including vines, were planted in this rich valley of Gamage. It is at the end of the 19th century that the vine disappears from the landscape, because of the invasion of a destructive insect: the phylloxera. The vines returned to the valley thanks to heavy earthworks in the 60s, under the impetus of Jean-Lou Debart. His children continued the work of enlargement of the property.
Always interested in technical progress, Jean-Lou Debart is constantly seeking to innovate, while preserving the environment. A very healthy vat-house and a winery equipped with a decontamination unit enable him to produce quality wines which satisfy the most knowledgeable of wine-lovers.
Currently, the property covers more than one hundred hectares, including 60 vineyards in Bordeaux and upper Bordeaux appellation. Today it is still a family property with the takeover of Jean-Daniel and Xavier.
- 60 hectares of vines form the vineyard of Château Cablanc. It is composed of 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.
- The work of the vine begins in November, with the waist, and ends in July, with the lifting and the épamprages. It is a period of intense work, where everything has to be done quickly.
