Château Lamothe Bergeron
Situated 500 metres from St Julien, adjacent to Château Gruaud Larose and Château Lascombes, this property is blessed with some very fine vineyards producing fruit worthy of Classes Growth status delivering outstanding value for money. In 2013 Francois Nony installed a new winemaking team, including Olivier Seze and Bruno Sauquet (previously at Montrose) to take this Château to the next level. This has proved to be a great decision.
A robust and structured wine, with a superb fruit structure. There is a delicious, rich, black cassis character with an underlay of chocolate, notes of pencil lead, a touch of forest floor and fine tannins. The finish is polished and impressive.
Great paired with duck breast with bacon, cabbage and balsamic dressing.
