The Story

Powerful and revealing intense colour, the red wines of Château La Garde Pessac-Léognan are well-structured and concentrated and ideal for ageing. Round, supple and alluring, they reflect the elegance and finesse of the terroir and today feature among the elite of the Pessac-Léognan appellation.

Vinification & Ageing

Pre-fermentation cold maceration. Alcoholic fermentation, with very few manipulations (pumping-over, pigeage). Malolactic fermentation partially in barrels. Ageing in barrels takes place in an arched underground cellar with air-conditioning for 12-14 months. Cooperage savoir-faire and oak selection are combined when choosing the barrels so that they are best suited to the characteristics and style of Château La Garde wines.

 Markus Del Monego / Best Sommelier in the World 1998, MW (Germany)  tasted  Château La Garde 2014  ( Château La Garde )

"Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black centre. Elegant nose with hints of pyrotechnical flavours, slightly smoky, toasted flavours and ripe fruit. On the palate well structured with good weight and length, well balanced tannins."
