Chateau Les Abeilles Saint-Georges Saint-Emilion 2015 (Bordeaux, France)

Château Les Abeilles is a property owned by the Boidron family, winegrowers in the region since 1760. The Les Abeilles vineyard is about 17 acres and planted to Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec with an average vine age of 50 years. The 2015 is 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec. 

The Boirdron family is committed to planting flora for better nutrition for bees, between rows of vines and surrounding areas, giving rise to the name of the château "Les Abeilles" or (The bees). They are taking part in the collective project ‘Beefriendly vineyards’ organised by the wine-growing unions of Montagne Saint- Emilion and Saint-Georges Saint-Emilion. 

Wine growers plant melliferous flowers every two or three rows of vines and along ditches. They use a range of plants that have been developed specifically to diversify and improve bees’ food. A technical code of conduct for wine growing has been established in a charter. 

This ecological project is also aesthetic because of the color palette that presents visitors with a landscape of blossoming vineyards.
