The average age of the vines are 10-30 years. Grapes are harvested by hand and the bunches are placed in the press intact. Only indigenous yeast is used and little sulfites are added to the wine. The grapes are pressed slowly in order to obtain the clearest juice possible. The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are vinified (aged) separately in enamel-lined vats, blended, and left to spend several weeks on its fine lees.

Greenish straw in the glass with scents of apricot, flowers, warm almond skins and beeswax. The bright palate offers up melon and citrus fruit with a thick core of white pit fruit minerality and herbaceous acidity. This blend has terrific concentration and outstanding balance.

About the Producer
Nadia Lusseau created Château Haut Lavigne in 2002 when she took over 8.5-hectares of vineyards in the Cotes de Duras. The vineyard is made up of 4-hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, plus 4.5-hectares of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cotes de Duras is located approximately 100 kilometers from the Atlantic, and benefits from the ocean air while enjoying less rain, therefore more sunshine than appellations further to the west.
Nadia’s viticultural approach results in top-quality fruit and her winemaking allows for a true expression of terroir. She has been farming organically since 2005 all of her vines were certified organic in 2006. Nadia Lusseau represents a younger generation of women winemakers working in France whose informed approach and deft touch are yielding outstanding results.
