Chateau les Conseillans 2019
Côtes de Bordeaux
The 2019 vintage enjoyed a warm, dry summer, providing excellent ripening conditions for the grapes. The autumn period was also dry and quite hot.
The vineyards of Chateau Les Conseillans stand on a terroir of gravelly and clay soils mostly facing south. It is divided into 14 distinctive plots with different varietal mix and age. We believe that the vineyard is the major contributor to the wine’s quality and character. Because of this we try to limit our interventions to the most classical of French vineyard techniques. We avoid weed-killers and use pheromones to fight against insects. Farming for flavour and picking on the optimum day are essential.
Les Conseillans covers twenty hectares of woodland, vineyards and fields in the heart of the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux, a few kilometres from the village of Saint-Caprais-de-Bordeaux.
In 2011, the Chateau was acquired by Bruce Jackson, an American wine enthusiast, and his wife Irina Krasovskaya. Over the next three years, Bruce and Irina, restored the Chateau, renovated the vineyards and completely modernized the technical facilities.
