This property is found at the feet of the Touran Cross in Saint-Etienne- de- lisse. In the heart of the Saint- Emilion Grand Cru wine designation. This village that must have been covered by the ocean some thousand years ago still has ancient ruins surrounding it. This town was the scene of the famous Castillon Battle in 1453, which marked the surrender of the English following their 300-years of presences in the Aquitaine region.
The Touran Cross undoubtedly has something precious to offer, it has a hidden view point on the Jurisdiction and allows you to embrace the entire wine landscape.
