Set in the east of the Entre-Deux-Mers region and built during the Hundred Years’ War, Château Labatut is renowned for its architectural wealth. Two 15th century defense towers grant an impressive view of the 45 hectares of sun-soaked, clay-limestone vineyards planted around the château.
Sylvie and Vincent Levieux took over the family vineyard in 2003, with the aim of producing a new style of Bordeaux. Representing an up-and-coming generation of winegrowers in the region, their vision is a wine “between two worlds”- modern and fruit forward, coupled with the elegance and traditions that have always characterised the best Bordeaux wines. They care for their vines sustainably, using short pruning, grass covering, de-budding, de-leafing and green harvesting if necessary. Château Labatut produces a very charming, approachable style of wine for early and mid-term drinking.
