Our expert tells you about this wine.
Château Bourdieu is located just a stone’s throw away from the Citadel of Blaye on the finest terroirs of the “Blaye, Côtes de Bordeaux” appellation. It is planted with the noblest grape varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, which develop in harmony with the sandy, clay-limestone and gravelly soils.
Owned by the Schweitzer family, the vineyard is worked traditionally and with respect for nature. Enormous attention is paid to sensible pruning, as well as selective de-budding and then total de-leafing which ensures that the grapes enjoy maximum exposure to the sun. All this is done with a specific objective in mind: striving for excellent quality. This environmentally-friendly approach guarantees grapes of the highest quality.
