Chateau de Lavison Bordeaux 2018
An authentic Bordeaux with 'Environmental Value' certification
This Bordeaux has a medium depth of colour with red berry fruits such as raspberry and cranberry with a sprinkling of white pepper on the palate. There are some fine, elegant tannins on the finish which helps the length along.
The year 977 marks the origin of Château de Lavison. A simple wooden tower, it will become a castle for the occupation of the English kings and then a pleasure castle for the renaissance. Today, the 60 hectares of vines stretch all around the castle on a height overlooking the valley of Dropt. Part of the estate is conducted in organic agriculture, the other part is in sustainable agriculture.
The Martet family has been cultivating land for 5 generations. His philosophy is to be closer to the plant to create wines that respect the origin, the identity of the place and the people who cultivate it.
'Environmental Value' certification issued by the French Ministry for Agriculture rewards the winegrower's efforts to make their vineyard particularly environmentally friendly and covers the whole process from vine-growing to bottling.
