Portraits Vignerons - Il faut investir dans le millésime 2015 - Les Grappes

"We need to invest in the 2015 vintage."

Diary #3 : The highlight of the last few months at Château Lamothe de Haux has been, of course, the harvest for our white wines : mechanical harvests except for our " Cuvée Valentine " which is in a way our signature wine !

Manual harvesting for our signature cuvée

This year again, but perhaps more than in 2014, the clay soils gave us a very good quality of grapes. The only downside is that the harvest was rather less prolific than the previous vintage... The harvest continued on our red wines which should also give us very beautiful red wines, very tasty and structured. Without wanting to fall into the mystique of "every multiple year of 5 produces great wines", a belief that is quite well established in Bordeaux, the 2015 vintage looks really promising, oscillating between the potential of 2010 and the warm and charming side of 2009... We should enjoy it!

Our elegant Valentine Blanc, with its blend of Sauvignon Gris and Sauvignon Blanc for an explosion of aromas!
