The Terroir of Château Lamothe Despujols

The vineyards produce 85% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon, and 5% Muscadelle. Their rich soil is a mix of sand, gravel, limestone and clay, which means that the great diversity of soils can produce high-quality grapes. The average age of the vineyard is 40 years although some vines could beat least 70 years old. At the Château Lamothe Despujols winery, vinification takes place in steel tanks after the pressing of grapes, the wine is then matured both in tanks and in new French oak barrels.
