Located on the exceptional alluvial gravel terroir of “Le Caillou”
(the pebble), Château Mamin appears on 18th century maps as
a property of the knight of Mamin. It is located in Arbanats, in
the heart of the Graves region. Unattended for decades, it
came back to life in 1995.
This single vineyard has an incredibly healthy soil from organic and biodynamic practices which provide rich nutrients required to produce quality grapes: no synthetic products are used, no filtration takes place upon bottling, no SO2 is added. This unique soil regeneration and the focus on biodiversity create a microcosm boasting superior grape quality and authenticity of terroir.
