Fifth generation vigneron in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region in the village of St Genis du Bois. Château Motte-Maucourt owes its name to the presence of a feudal mound ("motte") in the heart of its vineyard. It belonged in 1277 to Pierre de Laubesc, a local knight who paid homage to the Lord of Benauge. 50 ha of vines with an average age of 25 years producing red, white, and rosé. The red wines are aged between 15 and 18 months in a combination of tank and barrel. The 2015 Motte Maucourt, Bordeaux Supérieur shows all the strength of the superb 2015 vintage – soft, forward with ripe, sweet fruit and fine tannins. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.
