    Château Labastide

    Château Labastide is the only domain of the Brulhois appellation located on the right bank of the Garonne. Due to the clay-rich soils, not unlike Pomerol, the Merlot here is particularly structured and intense, whilst the Cabernet Franc and Tannat reaches full maturity due to the continental climate here. 

  • Jean-Michel Deluc says

    For a long time, the grapes of the Côtes-du-Brulhois have gone into AOP Brulhois to be made into wine with a more defined style. The wines made here are often based on Merlot for richness, Cabernet Franc for freshness and Tannat for structure and power. What's remarkable is the complexity and balance of the wine, combining fruit and spice with finesse and a structure to help the wine age. A true Gascon, in both charm and character!
