This is real, traditional Bordeaux. Owned by the Amoreau family since 1610, Château Le Puy overlooks the Dordogne valley on the same geological plateau as Saint-Emilion and Pommerol. The 15th generation winemakers work using biodynamic principles, implying no chemicals on the soil, low yields, no yeasting nor new oak. This is their entry level wine but its nice to see the same care goes into all their bottlings. From younger vines planted over clay and limestone, this is a fresh, joyful Bordeaux.
