Château Haut La Valette

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

The name of the Château is linked to the locality of our first parcel of its real name "Valet"

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.
