The vineyard

The domain

From the elegant building of Château HAUT PIQUAT contemplate a superb view of the hills combed with vines and woods.

At the heart of the appellation, on one of its highest points,  the vineyard extends in one piece.

Dominated by the Tertre de PICAMPEAU, the site is home to an astonishing Gallic megalith.


Since the acquisition in 1972 there has been constant improvement of the vineyard in the restructuring of the plots, the selection of grape varieties and  rootstocks.

But also in the production tool itself with the construction of high-performance facilities both for vinification and for maturing and ageing.

1989 A new ultra modern vat room is built, in stainless steel vats already equipped with thermoregulation

2000  A new barrel cellar is born, making it possible to accommodate 480 French oak barrels.


North of the SAINT-ÉMILION appellations: 

A harmonious landscape of plateaus and coasts.

The floor  clay-limestone (with starfish and red clay) is particularly  ideal for growing vines

The grape varieties

80% Merlot which brings refined elegance, fat in the mouth and which gives an accessible and flattering side.

15%  Cabernet Sauvignon which brings spicy notes, reinforces the tannins.

5%  Malbec which brings a more intense aromatic complexity ranging from candied red fruits, blueberry prunes to subtle red fruit notes of raspberry and wild strawberry.

"Our passion is nourished by know-how acquired year after year, guided by the search for quality with the greatest respect for tradition"

Jean-Pierre Riviere
