Château Haut Landon

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.

Château Haut Landon is named after a plot acquired in 1990.

The colour is beautifully intense. The nose opens with spicy, very harmonious notes of peanut. The attack is supple in the mouth, accompanied with fine tannins that give a most interesting sweetness. The long finish ends on a harmonious note of ripe fruit and wood.
