Château Cateau Lagrange

The passion of growing vine and its fruit – the grape – came to me in my childhood. It got stronger as I met men and women in love with their profession, but also after learning and exchanging knowledge. This profession requires constant questioning and being aware of new discoveries in order to find the best balance between terroir, soil life and vine. The goal is to produce harmonious wines at all times ; proof of this searched poise. Today, my vineyard accounts for 10 hectares of vines, located on slopes, south of Sainte Foy La Grande. It is grown according to organic farming since the 1990s for one part, the other part was converted in 2011, as I established.

Cateau is the name of a locality and La Grange the name of a prominent family.

Tasting comments :

The colour is a dazzling deep crimson. The very open nose leads to aromas of ripe grapes; the mouth is generous, with still firm tannins. This wine is all down to the skill of a winemaker who vinifies without adding any sulphites whatsoever, leading to a succulent, powerful blend that gives full expression to its terroir. A natural wine.
