Origin

The vines have an average age of 45 years. They lie on a rocky outcrop of calcareous silt soil, which encourages the roots to dig deep to access water and nutrients, giving the finished wines excellent freshness and acidity. Winemaker Nicolas Géré, who worked with Jean-Louis Chave before returning to Bordeaux, is uncompromising in his search for purity and elegance in the fruit. With a strong belief in the transition to biodynamic farming, Nicolas and his team have helped to restore the ecosystem in the vineyards by using highly effective growing techniques, and placing beehives and chickens among the vines.

Grape Variety

50% Cabernet Franc , 49% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon

Château Fleur de Lisse is a blend of 50% Cabernet Franc, 49% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vinification is overseen by consultant winemaker Jean Claude Berrouet, who is also the consultant at Château Pétrus. The grapes are harvested by hand, while sorting is done both before and after destemming. Fermentation is carried out in temperature-controlled concrete vats for two to four weeks at a temperature between 28 and 30°C. The wine is then aged for 18 months in a combination of concrete vats and 20% new French oak.
