Chateau Gachon is located on 15 hectares of clay soils, a mere 400m from the world famous Chateau Petrus, close to the hamlet of Pomerol. Classified within the district of the Montagne Saint-Emilion, it is the property of the Arpin family, vignerons for eight generations, who have invested wisely in new cellar equipment to support a contemporary `modernist` style of winemaking.
