The Wine
Deep, dark in appearance and tinged with crimson. Enticing lusciously ripe, red fruit-laden aromas combine on the bouquet with spicy, even smoky notes, quite typical of this Pessac-Leognan terroir. The lovely ripe fruit brings fleshy, well-balanced character on the palate, underpinned by powerful, rounded tannins, coated in generous richness and well-integrated oak. This harmonious wine culminates in a long, lasting finish.

Attracted by the exceptional quality of its soil, Dourthe Vineyards acquired Chateau La Garde, which is located on one of the finest gravel mounds of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, in 1990. Motivated by an ambitious project and a great terroir, the huge investment of time and effort is rewarded today by producing more and more consistently a great wine of Pessac-Léognan that fine, elegant and charming.Located on one of the appellation's finest gravel outcrops, Château La Garde was one of the first vineyard estates to make a conscious commitment to preserve and protect the natural environment and adopt integrated viticulture. It is now "Terra Vitis" certified. It is an approach resulting in the production of premium quality grapes, and is fully mindful of both Man and the environment. Powerful and revealing intense colour, the red wines of Château La Garde Pessac-Léognan are well-structured and concentrated and ideal for ageing. Round, supple and alluring, they reflect the elegance and finesse of the terroir and today feature among the elite of the Pessac-Léognan appellation.
