Chateau la grange des Mauberts, Sainte Foy de Bordeaux Rouge 2020.
The passion of winegrowing – grapes – comes from the owner childhood. He got stronger as he met men and women in love with this job and also thanks to apprenticeships and knowledge exchanges. This métier forces to question yourself very often and to listen to new discoveries to find the best balance between terroir, the soil’s life and the vine, in hopes to produce balanced wines. Today, his vineyard counts for 10 hectares of vines located on slopes south of Sainte-Foy-La-Grande. He has been running it following organic farming, since 1990 for one part, the other got certified in 2011, as he settled.
