We had been established at Château Haut Landon for almost a decade when in 1997 we decided to take over from our parents at Château Plaizirs. They had owned the estate since 1981 and planted the whole vineyard. Their skills were very traditional: my father even aged his wines in huge barrels called foudres. After taking over, we have expanded and modernised the estate. Today it covers 38 hectares and we have set up our storage and vinification cellars there.
Cold maceration for 3-4 days prior to fermentation. Turbo-punching of the cap for gentle extraction. Length of maceration adapted according to the year. Aged in cement and stainless steel vats.
Intense colour with purple glints. The nose, with a highly concentrated aroma of fresh blackcurrant is very powerful. This continues on the palate, well structured and supple with delicate balance. The finish is clean and dominated by fresh summer berries. This unconventional style is very appealing.
Meats in sauce.
