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.
Wonderfully aromatic with classic claret forest floor notes. The palate is beautifully balanced, with succulent sweet ripe black fruits, cassis and black cherry, a delicious freshness, graphite and lead and a superb tannin structure. The finish is long, beautiful and seasoned, with lingering flavours of Belgian chocolate, raspberry coulis and cinnamon.
Yields of 37.2 hl/ha, aged for 12 months in 1/3 new oak barrels.
