Haut-Medoc

La Motte de Clement Pichon Haut Medoc is located in Bordeaux's sub-region of Haut-Medoc ,The Haut-Medoc is located in the south of Medoc appellation. It produces only red wines and is the cradle of 6 renowned appellations: Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe. On a soil composed of limestone and clay, the dominant grape is Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot with a smaller proportion of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. These wines have a good aging potential. Young, Haut-Medoc wines are very tannic, some cannot be drink before some years of cellaring. With ages they offer a flexible development and produces complex aromatic bouquet of red fruits.

Grape

  • Merlot(75%)  
    It is the most representative grape of Bordeaux, covering 60% of the vineyard. It is found mainly in the Libournais, on the "right bank" of the Garonne, especially in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape is easily exportable thanks to its adaptability to different soils. It matures very quickly on gravelly soils, but it is clay soils of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion that fit it best. There, the fruit is expressed all in delicacy, offering floral notes of violet, peony, and of black and red fruits. Among all Bordeaux varieties, Merlot is the one which offers roundness and smoothness to the wine. Over time, these flavors evolve towards undergrowth aromas, marked by mushrooms, truffles, tobacco and even old leather.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon(25%)  
    One of the most cultivated grape variety in the world. Often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it is grown in nearly every wine producing country, thanks to its hardy constitution. It can be identified by its thick skin and some low yields. In a blend, Cabernet-Sauvignon brings tannins, structure and acidity, which are the keys to a perfect aging process. Californian Nappa Valley has espacially well worked this varietal, which is the main factor of its extrordinary recognition and success. Known for its vegetal flavors such as mint and eucalyptus, Cabernet Sauvignon can turn a wine with herbaceous dominances if harvested too green.

Owner

Located near Bordeaux in Parempuyre, the story of Clement-Pichon Castle dates back to the fourteenth century when it was denominated La Motte Caupene. After a succession of families and the passage of Louis XIV on his land, the castle, after a fire, was rebuilt by the Durand-Dassiers family in 1881. This Renaissance-inspired architectural was acquired by Clement Fayat in 1976. There, has been fully recreated a 25-hectare vineyard. Indeed, the Fayat family began renovations by starting with the vineyard, which was completely replanted. The 25 hectare vineyard of Chateau Clement Pichon is planted with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. On the gravel, sand and clay based soil 6,500 vines per hectare are planted. The wine is vinified in temperature controlled, in stainless steel vats. Fermentation takes place in vat. On average, the wine is aged in 50% new, French oak barrels.
