CHÂTEAU HAUT LA VALETTE

In my family, wine growing is a passion passed on from father to son. I followed the footsteps of my father, who owned a 10- hectares estate, by founding Château Haut La Valette in 1978. Over the years, I have joined the two estates together to make a 22- hectares family-run vineyard. The most satisfying work is that along with my son, who has joined me at the Château after studying winegrowing, winemaking, and gathered work experience in several different appellations. Our characters are complementary, and his presence helps to invigorate and perpetuate our family heritage.

Tasting comments :

Purple in colour, it opens with generous notes of fresh summer berries on the nose. The mouth is rich with powerful tannins that fade into aromas of very ripe redcurrants. As a whole it is perfectly balanced and lively with marked sweetness. An accomplished, classic style that highlights the appellation’s finest terroirs.

White meats with sauce.
