Origin

The vines of Lamothe-Bouscaut are on average 35 years old and grow on deep, gravel soils near the Garonne River, situated 200 metres above sea level. The vineyards are planted with 20% Semillon and 80% Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyards are managed sustainably in order to respect the environment. Labouring the soils and keeping ground cover between rows is essential, with spraying reduced to a minimum. The vines are Guyot-trained and are on well-draining gravel soils.

Grape Variety

80% Sauvignon Blanc , 20% Semillon

The 2018 vintage started out very wet with hail and high levels of rainfall causing disease pressure in the vineyard. However, summer was hot and very dry and these conditions lasted through until October. While Bordeaux saw the hottest summer since 2003, the nights were cool, which allowed the grapes to maintain freshness.
