Origin

The vines of Lamothe-Bouscaut are on average 35 years old and grow on deep, gravel soils near the Garonne River, situated 200 metres above sea level. The vineyards are planted with 20% Semillon and 80% Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyards are managed sustainably in order to respect the environment. Labouring the soils and keeping ground cover between rows is essential, with spraying reduced to a minimum. The vines are Guyot-trained and are on well-draining gravel soils.

Producer

Château Lamothe-Bouscaut is located in the village of Cadaujac and dates back to the 12th century. In 1999 it was acquired by its neighbour, Château Bouscaut, owned by Sophie Lurton and Laurent Cogombles. The vineyards measure a total of nine hectares and are mainly comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.

Grape Variety

80% Sauvignon Blanc , 20% Semillon

The grapes were hand harvested. The bunches of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were pressed and the juice fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks for a period of three weeks with regular pumping over. The wine was then aged in oak barrels on its lees for eight months.
