Chateau Capet-Guillier is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, from a small estate lying to the south of the town of Saint-Emilion, close to the village of Saint-Hippolyte. Owned by the same family since the French Revolution, Antoine Moueix Propriétés took over the property in 2009. Stéphane Derenoncourt and Benoît Coq lead the winemaking team, producing an excellent Saint-Émilion Grand Cru from the estate’s three hectares of vines.
