    About Château Lamothe-Bergeron

    Château Lamothe-Bergeron is continuing the adventure which began in the 18th and 19th centuries with renewed ambition. The Château owes part of its name to one if its early owners, Jacques de Bergeron, a famous 18th century agronomist. Deemed to be one of the leading Cru Bourgeois Supérieur wines of the 19th century, a status retained today, Lamothe-Bergeron has always been a benchmark Haut-Médoc wine. Nestling between the terroirs of Margaux and Saint-Julien, Lamothe-Bergeron forms part of the closed circle of châteaux “with a river view”, in other words those occupying the best gravels left by the Gironde estuary. This magical soil warms the grapes, provides perfect drainage and produces grapes with finesse… All year round, no effort is spared to ensure that the vines enjoy ideal conditions: rigorous pruning, de-budding, grass planting to suit each vineyard, leaf stripping, green harvesting etc. Each operation is also planned so as to be plant-friendly and environmentally-friendly. The grapes are rigorously sorted and then carefully carried to the vats. The château has two fermenting rooms, in stainless steel and cement, and winemaking processes  are adapted to the individual plot. The best oak barrels are carefully selected for the immense wine barrel store. The wine will spend 12 to 18 months there, depending upon the vintage.
