Château Laplagnotte Bellevue 2020
Product detailed description
The first mention of the château Laplagnotte Bellevue vineyard appears in the second edition of Cock’s book, which was completely revised by Édouard Féret in 1868. The vineyard was producing between six to ten barrels at the time, which means that it existed long before this date. In the following decades, the estate got bigger, and in 1954 the parents of the previous owners did one last alteration. The total surface of the vineyard has not changed since then: we have 6.09ha.
The Château Laplagnotte Bellevue has been owned by Henry and Claude de Labarre (née Fourcaud Laussac) since 3rd March 1990, and they have since been passionately devoted to it.
Current owner Arnaud de Labarre says: "Whether it is in our fields or in our wineries, our working method remains traditional, I am an organic wine producer.
However, we also move with the times and have powerful tools for our vineyards and the winery. The passion I felt for organic wine increased, and I decided to use the biodynamic method. The 2017 vintage was the first one to be certified by Demeter."
The aging is done in barrels for one year, with 25% new oak barrels.
