Grapes: 35% Cabernet Sauvignon/ 60% Merlot/ 5% Petit Verdot
Very much a family affair! Christophe Allard, the father, former CEO and co-founder of Teleperformance, bought the vineyard in 2009 and undertook many restructuring investments to raise the quality of the wines. In 2010, Louis Allard, the son, integrated the team as commercial and technical director. He always had the ambition to convert the vineyard to organic and his work will be recognized in 2022. Eric Boissenot, a major oenologist-consultant of the most influential of classified growths is also looking after this estate on which he lavishes his expertise! The target is clearly defined: Sigognac is considered and managed as a wine of high-quality potential.
“Whisper it – this is seven years old and drinking a treat right now. Mediumweight, refined, cassis and plum-kissed and designed for Sunday lunch glory, so get in quick!” Matthew Jukes, Moneyweek
