Château Marquisat La Perouse' grapes are grown on a 10 hectare site with the oldest castle surrounded by vines in the area of Berson, in the heart of the Blaye Côte de Bordeaux region.
The Alzumar family acquired the first vineyards in 1831 and work with the greatest respect for nature and traditions, they refused to use any herbicides or chemical fertilizers based on them. In 2011, the château was bought by Jean-Francois Levrier, who continued the tradition of making natural wine. The estate is certified according to ECOCERT, DEMETER and DYNAMIS standards - an association of winemakers who work according to biodynamic methods.
Vineyard soils here are mainly clay-limestone. The wine was aged in stainless steel vats (80%) and oak barrels (20%) for 12 months.
A vibrant cherry red in the glass, the pure red fruit aromas are joined by a subtle leafy note. The palate is elegant and supple with ripe plum and strawberry flavours before a long savoury finish.
