Château Lamothe-Bouscaut

Pessac-Léognan

Cadaujac is one of the closest villages of the Pessac-Léognan appellation to Bordeaux. It is here that the Château of Lamothe-Bouscaut stands proud, along the national road that links Bordeaux to Toulouse. 12 Hectares of a single continuous vineyard surround the château, a former fortress dating back to the 12th century. Charted on a 17th century map of Belleyme, the vineyards of Lamothe-Bouscaut are a fine set of gravelly soils near the Garonne River. 6Has are planted to red with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot : it produces around 30 000 bottles/year. The whites on one hectare are planted with a majority of sémillons along with sauvignon blanc ; they produce 6 000 bottles a year. The wines from Lamothe-Bouscaut enjoyed an excellent and widespread reputation before the 2nd World War, as proven in the ‘Bible of Bordeaux wines’ – the Féret guide.
Sophie Lurton and her husband Laurent Cogombles, the owners of Château Bouscaut, bought the Lamothe-Bouscaut estate in 1999 from Mrs Martin who had entrusted the running of this beautiful vineyard to the Château Bouscaut team in 1945, so it was a natural progression. The Château Lamothe-Bouscaut label was thus reborn and re-launched in 1999 with both red and white wines.

Integrated production vineyards
Just like at Château Bouscaut, the vineyards are managed using integrated
production in order to respect the environment. Labouring the soils and keeping ground cover between rows is essential. Spraying is reduced to a minimum. The vines are pruned and trained using the simple Guyot system. During the harvest the grapes are mainly handpicked while some Cabernet Sauvignons are machine harvested.

Tradition and precision
For the white wine the bunches of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are pressed and the juice is partially racked then chilled for 24 hours before being transferred to barrels of which 35% are new oak. The wines are then vinified on their fine lees with batonnage. When the
alcoholic fermentation is completed the barrel aging starts with monthly batonnage for about a year on average. The white wine is blended in March and bottled around June. The aim of our vinifying method is to create a full-bodied, round, smooth white wine that can be enjoyed when it is still young and up to 5 years of bottle age. It’s a white wine that goes very well with fresh, refined seafood dishes such as scallops and steamed fish, for example.

Château Lamothe-Bouscaut

Pessac-Léognan

Joli domaine implanté au lieu-dit le Bouscaut, à Cadaujac dont la maison est érigée sur une ancienne place forte du XIIème, Lamothe-Bouscaut est acquis en 1999 par le Château Bouscaut qui exploitait déjà ses vignes en fermage depuis les années 1940. Son terroir plus graveleux et légèrement sableux s’adapte aux cabernets et merlots en rouge. Très petite production de blanc également.
