Château Pré la Lande is located in the Appellation AOC Sainte-Foy Bordeaux. The wines they produce are certified organic, Demeter and vegan and in addition to an organic conventional wine, they also make a very beautiful red wine made entirely from terracotta amphorae of 450 l from Tuscany. is ripened. The 22 hectare site, including 14 hectares of one-piece vineyards, is situated on the slopes of a hill overlooking the Dordogne valley. Organic farming since 2007. Biodynamic methods of wine treatment since 2012.

The Château Pré la Lande has been producing wine since 1860 from the slope of a hill at 120 meters, one of the peaks in Gironde. The natural slopes guarantee good drainage and the proximity to the Dordogne river a mild climate. The Sainte-Foy Bordeaux designation, renamed Sainte-Foy Côtes de Bordeaux in 2016, is one of the oldest in Gironde with a decree published in 1937. The soil of Château Pré la Lande is exclusively a thin layer of clay with limestone underneath, sometimes visible on the surface, guaranteeing a wine that combines elegance with strong character.

All wines are bottled with no or very little filtering. The absolute minimum of sulphite is added to guarantee the stability of wine. The total amount of SO2 is even considerably lower than the permitted amounts for organic wines. The bottles are always sealed with chlorine-free corks and the bottle supplier commits to using 95% recycled glass. The cardboard supplier for the boxes takes an ecological approach by using 75% recycled paper and biodegradable inks.

Cuvée Diana is a blend of 60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard located on a limestone subsoil with an average age of 42 years. The yield is deliberately kept very low and is only 28 hl / hectare, which is only a fraction of what is allowed, but at Château Pré la Lande they opt for aggressive pruning so that the few bunches of grapes get the best of the terroir. Harvesting is done by hand with a first selection in the vineyard by our own (experienced) pickers.

After picking and arrival at the Chateau's winery, a cold pre-fermentation starts. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in thermo-regulated barrels. This takes about 5 weeks, so this process is given plenty of time. The wines are then allowed to mature for 15 months in oak barrels, 80% of which are new oak, in the beautiful stone cellar built in 1860. The wine is further lightly filtered using proteins from peas, not from eggs (VEGAN). I

With the dry end of summer and nice weather in October, it was easy to wait for the optimal maturity of each vine. Good and healthy grapes largely determine the quality of a wine. If it is allowed to mature without minimal interventions, then more than a foundation has been laid for a very good wine. In the glass, the Cuvée Diana from Château Pré la Lande has a deep red color. After rolling, aromas of black fruit, licorice and vanilla appear in the nose. The mouth is a blend of elegance and powerful body with subtle aromas of cherries and coffee. The tannins are tight but very polished and the finish is full and sensual with hints of cocoa and vanilla. The wine is already ready to drink, but it is advisable to decant the wine an hour before drinking, but if you want to put this wine away for a while, this is fine for the next 10 years.
