Château Vircoulon has been in the same family for four generations. Patrick Hospital took over in 1983 and now manages the estate along with his wife Hélène. The vineyards are on prime south and west facing hillsides sites in the commune of St Avit de Soulege.
You may recognise the label because Château Vircoulon Blanc is one of our top selling white wines. You’ll be pleased to hear that the red is equally as delicious!
A smooth, traditional-style claret, this wine would be perfect served with grilled ribs or roasted meats
