This stunning vineyard is situated northeast of St. Emilion on your way to Pomerol. Its vines are planted on a terroir located near La Conseillante, and Figeac. One of its closest neighbor is no less than Cheval Blanc ! The Grégoire family, that previously owned La Rivière in Fronsac, acquired this estate in January 2015. Since then, it has seen huge investments, renovation and plantation program. The varietal mix has evolved with these new plantings and is better adapted to Ripeau’s terroir.
Over the past four vintages, Ripeau has become one of the top « renaissance » stories in St. Emilion. Once a notorious underperformer, it has been transformed by the new owners into what is already one of the appellation’s best values!
