Owner Description

The origins of the estate date back to the 18th century. The very pretty chartreuse built in 1732 was then surrounded by some vineyards but mostly wood. The vineyard Domaine de Lagarde 's ' s enlarged in the XIX to become one of the largest in Martillac, covering the most beautiful croupes dominating the commune.This exceptional terroir, surrounded by the largest of the appellations Pessac Leognan, seduit Dourthe who bought the property in 1990. Covering the most beautiful croups of Martillac, the vineyard of 53Ha enjoys a Haute Couture viticulture , where nothing is left to chance to always obtain the most beautiful grapes: the diversity of soils is perfectly repertoriee; the grapes are precisely adapted; the vineyard is conducted in respect of the environment and the soil with a reasoned viticulture and certain parcels cultivated in Bio and Biodynamie. Only the finest grapes are brought to the winery whose renovations over the past few years allow a 'à la carte' treatment depending on each lot, respecting the terroir. Once vinified, the different lots are aged in barrels, in a superb underground winery. Like most Pessac Leognan, Ch La Garde produces a superb blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Sauvignon Gris- and Chateau La Garde Rouge-a harmonious blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Petit Verdot.
