What We Say

Dark, rich wine with lots of plummy black fruit flavour, typical of this appellation. Balanced by tantalising acidity and freshness giving the wine a lovely well-rounded character.

What They Say

A hue of dark purple and a delicate nose with black fruits, black pepper and tobacco. On the palate, there is a nice freshness on the attack and a very nice volume with a lingering finish and a great minerality : a stylish wine.

About The Producer Château Bernateau

Chateau Bernateau has been handed down from generation to generation of the Lavau family for more than two centuries. This small estate is located in Saint-Étienne-de-Lisse, where the Lavau family have been cultivating wines since the reign of Louis XIV and Cardinal Mazarin. These ancestral origins serve as a strong motivation to continue their traditional methods in winemaking, while also improving it through learning new knowledge and techniques of wine making today. Mr. and Mrs. Régis Lavau currently manage the property, and since 2002, their son Pierrick, a graduate of the Faculty of Oenology in Bordeaux, has joined them to continue the family legacy. He represents the eighth generation involved in the production of this estate.
