Print the sheet

Ownership & history:

This estate has been in the same family for four generations and is now run by the husband-and-wife team of Serge and Nadine Bédicheau. The vineyard is situated in the south-east of the Pessac-Léogan appellation, next door to Château Latour-Martillac and near to the banks of the Garonne.

Vineyard & location:

The vineyard is relatively small, with 7.45 hectares dedicated to red grapes and 2.10 to white. The vines are on average 19 years old and the soil is a mix of gravel, clay and chalk.

Harvest, vinification & ageing:

The grapes are picked by hand and the alcoholic fermenation takes place in oak barrels. 50% of the wine is then aged in new French oak for 9 months, the other 50% in temperature-controlled vats. It is aged on fine lees until June.

Tasting:

Brilliant yellow appearance. Refined nose showing a successful pairing of sémillon and sauvignon aged on fine lees. Delicate smokey notes (grilled/toasty) mixed with yellow fruits (peach/apricot). Fleshy mouth balanced with a small amount of residual carbon dioxide that lifts the aromatics and adds freshness and verve.
