Chateau de Respide Graves Bordeaux Blanc


The Château de Respide is one of the oldest wineries in the region, with records mentioning the vineyards and woods of Respide going back to 1630. The Chatin family was drawn to this very special place and purchased the winery in 2021. Amelie Chatin is from Champagne and worked as an oenologist for Ruinart for nine years, then in Uruguay for four years. They are working with green cover, natural fertilization, and biodiversity preservation. In the cellar, they guide the wines to their best expression, using as little intervention as possible. 50% Sauvignon, Blanc 50% Semillon. 30-year old vines, grown in sandy and gravelly soil with some limestone plots. Aged on fine lees for six to eight months in stainless steel tanks.
