Château de Séraphine in Pomerol is Martin Krajewski’s most recent project in Bordeaux and is named after his grandmother. The estate consists of only 2.2 hectares in two parcels, one hectare in Plince and 1.2 hectares in Mazeyres. Having purchased the plots in 2017, a digger was used to dig deep soil pits and evaluate the soil profile in each.
Martin was ecstatic to discover blue clay two metres deep, the type of clay that is so special to Pomerol. Each vine is tended by hand, with ploughing and tilling of the soils done using a horse rather than tractors, which tend to compact the soil.
