Chateau Anniche, Bordeaux

Chateau Anniche

The Michel Pion vineyards cover an area of 200 acres with over 180 acres planted with vines. The Pion family has cultivated vines in the Village of Haux on the Left Bank since the Napoleonic Era. Chateau Anniche is located between the summit of the limestone cliffs overlooking the Garonne river and the plateau of the Entre-Deux-Mers. Until 1914, they made their own barrels for transporting the wines. The vines flourish in warm soils, on sunny slopes of clay-limestone and pebbly or flinty gravel. Like all the great wine producing regions of the world, they enjoy a temperate oceanic climate: mild winters, springs that are warm and damp, dry summers leading to misty autumns auspicious for the ripening of the grapes.
