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.
Château du Luc
Château du Luc
Cold maceration prior to fermentation. Delestage adapted to suit the structure of the wine. Three weeks' fermentation. Aged in vats.
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.
