Château Lamothe Bouscaut is located in the village of Cadaujac and dates back to the 12th century. In 1999 it was acquired by its neighbour, Château Bouscaut, owned by Sophie Lurton and Laurent Cogombles. The vineyards measure a total of nine hectares and are mainly comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.
The vines are grown on deep gravelly soils and are on average 35 years old. The vineyards are sustainably managed and pruning is carried out by hand by five vineyard workers.
The bunches of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are pressed and the juce is partially racked and chilled for 24 hours. Afterwards it is transferred to barrels, of which 30% are new oak where it is vinified on its fine lees. After fermentation, the wine is aged for eight months in oak with batonnage taking place once a month.
The nose offers fresh citrus and floral notes. On the palate it is well-rounded, with grapefruit and pineapple flavours. The oak is subtle and well-integrated, giving the wine body and balance.
