About Chateau les Mangons

Chateau les Mangons is located on the heights of Sainte-Foy-La-Grande, between Saint-Emilion and Bergerac, both on the slopes of the hillside and on the plateau thus benefitting from superb exposure.

It covers 32 hectares of vines, woods, and meadows. Formerly dedicated to polyculture (cereals, orchards, and vines) the vineyard currently occupies 20 hectares (with 14 hectares in production), most of which are planted with red grapes.

Since 2011, part of the vineyard has been replanted using massale selection. The use of green manure (oats, rye, beans, etc.) in winter is regular, thus avoiding soil erosion and fostering the airing of the soil. The application of dynamic preparations (prepared horn manure, silica), plant infusions (using nettles, horsetail, or wicker), and very precise planning of the treatments have made it possible to minimize the doses of copper and sulfur.

Since 2010, the winery is Certified Biodynamic through Demeter. The pruning is conducted using the single or mixed Guyot method. All the care of the vines is performed manually. Bud pruning and leaf removal are adapted each year depending on the vintage and on weather conditions. In the cellar, the Comps family favors short maceration in concrete vats, all the wines go through native yeasts fermentation and age in cement vats or 1/2 years old barriques. They are bottled without fining or filtration.
