Château du Luc

My family has always owned vineyards, but winegrowing wasn’t their main business: it was running the local shop! Personally I’ve always loved wine for its complex and evocative character. So in 1992 I bought 1.5 hectares of vines that belonged to my grandmother. Over the years I’ve managed to build up a vineyard that covers 14 (and soon 19) hectares. I manage my vines organically, the best method in my opinion to craft wines that are truest to their terroir.

The name of the Château is taken from the name of the locality where the vines are grown, Le Luc.

The wine is shot through with cherry red glints. The nose gradually becomes more powerful with subtle, roasted, woody notes. A well-structured palate, full and powerful, mingles with just-ripe fruit. The finish is full-bodied and amazingly protracted.
