CHÂTEAU DE CANDALE
SAINT-ÉMILION GRAND CRU
The famous south facing slope
of the appellation
Château Candale stretches over a clay-limestone hillside facing south. It houses cellars, a tasting room, a boutique and the gourmet restaurant of Vignobles Magali & Thibaut Decoster and his large terraces in an exceptional location.
Château de Candale extends over 6 hectares of the famous south coast of Saint-Emilion. This privileged location places the vineyard at the heart of the largest clay-limestone hillside terroirs of the appellation. The wines are powerful and very sunny with a ripe and modern profile. After following the recommendations of the Environmental Management System for Bordeaux wines since 2010, Magali & Thibaut Decoster obtained Level 3 High Environmental Value certification in 2021. In 2024, Château de Candale will complete its conversion to Organic Agriculture.

Château de Candale illustrates Aquitaine's links with Great Britain because it takes its origin from Lady Marguerite de Suffolk Kandall, descendant of Edward III, King of England and Duke of Aquitaine. Her marriage to Comte Jean de Foix allowed him to add Comte de Candale to his titles. The wines of the château, like those of the entire region, owe part of their success to the British navy and sense of commerce. Thanks to them, Bordeaux wines have traveled the world since the 12th century.
