Château Haut-Selve is the only example of total Bordeaux wine creation in the 20th century. Heir to a large family of Armagnac producers, Jean-Jacques Lesgourgues planted his vines in the early 1990s, on a beautiful terroir of limestone gravel, deep gravel and clay gravel.
Harvesting is manual. The maceration lasts about 3 weeks with daily pumping over. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 30°C. The aging is done in French oak barrels for 12 months (1/3 are new).
This wine has a brilliant color and offers a bouquet of garrigue and spices, with fine woody notes. On the palate, the attack is pleasant, with an intensity of red fruits. It is fresh, with fine tannins that stimulate its finish.
