Located in Blaignan, near Lesparre, in the heart of the Médoc appellation, the estate is established on clay and limestone soils. It extends to the north of the small town of Caussan from a mill located on a height, a "tertre": Le Tertre de Caussan.
Each generation has contributed to the evolution of the plot with the same logic:
- so that the transit of the grapes remains  as short as possible between harvest and vatting,
- to optimize vineyard work,
- to have a coherent and expressive spatial identity in our wines.

Nicolas Caussan


Terroir, Château Le Tertre de Caussan
When he arrived as manager of the estate, Nicolas Caussan wanted to know the possibilities offered to him by the soils and the associated terroirs.

The prerequisite for its installation was to draw up the soil map of the estate by carrying out surveys and soil pits on all the plots.
(opposite some examples of the most significant pits).
