Acquired by Jean-Claude Berrouet in 1985, Vieux Château Saint André comprises 22 hectares of vineyards at one of the highest points in Montagne Saint-Émilion (120 metres above sea level). The domaine is now run by one of his sons, Jeff Berrouet, but also benefits from the accumulated savoir-faire of Jean-Claude. Producing impressively deep wines with rich structuring tannins, this domaine is managed traditionally, with cuvaison periods of 15–20 days, aging with 15% new oak and 15% jars and the rest in barrels. Although a little austere in their youth, the wines blossom with some time in the cellar. The Berrouet family also owns Château Bonneau in Montagne, Château Hyon la Fleur in Saint-Émilion and Château Samion in Lalande-de-Pomerol.
