Château Lamothe Bergeron

Château Lamothe Bergeron Cru Bourgeois Supérieur

After a very rainy first six months, a historic heatwave set in (80 days, from June 20 to September 10) leading to an early and clear cessation of growth, which is often the marker of exceptional vintages. The return of the rain in mid-September, the succession of hot days and cool nights, allowed optimal maturity to be reached.

2016 is a great vintage, concentrated, intense in color. It offers a nose of black fruits, a palate that is both structured and soft. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

Considered one of the main Superior Cru Bourgeois in the 19th century, and confirmed in this status in 2020, Lamothe-Bergeron is a historic property in the Médoc. What did the estate look like in the Middle Ages? It's difficult to imagine it because of the first castle, actually a fortress, nothing remains except a plan drawn by Léo Drouyn in a work from 1865.

In its 1898 edition, Le Féret takes us back to the 14th century, when the estate belonged to the Captal de Buch. “It is said that, having become a prisoner of Duguesclin, Captal sold in advance ten harvests of his wine, highly esteemed by the English who then occupied Bordeaux, to pay the heavy ransom demanded of him

We know the history of the residence since the end of the 15th century. In the hands of the Lauste and Martel families, it was passed down from generation to generation until François Jacques Marie de Bergeron (1760-1810) whom we call for convenience Jacques de Bergeron.
