This refined red wine comes from the Côtes de Franc, which is a blend of 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet-Sauvignon. This is the top wine of Chateau Le Puy. Unlike other Bordeaux wines, they do not first make separate wines and then blend them into a unique cuvée. No. They pick everything together and then prepare the wine completely together. This, say extremely rare method, results in a more complex texture, with different flavors that come from the different yeasts, grapes and plots.

The Barthelemy is a very popular wine and is one of the most favorite wines in Japan. This is precisely because Le Barthélemy 2003 in a comic Japanese comic series about wine - "The drops of god" was recognized as the wine that can fulfill your highest expectations of all time. After that, sales followed like an express train. The entire 2003 volume was completely sold out in just a few days. Today the Château is "The most popular wine in Tokyo and surroundings". With the crown on the cake: a Château Le Puy store in Singapore.

Barthelemy La Cuvee is made from a selection of the best vineyards and vinified without the addition of sulfur, with a long aging in barrels. In the nose beautiful aromas of plums, cassis, cedar, herbs, pepper, roasted almonds and chocolate. In the mouth we have an incredibly complex length, and above all an impressive balance.

The wine has had 24 years of education in oak barrels (deliberately no new oak because the grape has to predominate) and comes from a vineyard on a limestone / rocky plateau and is cultivated without fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides, harvesting is done manually. The fermentation is long and vinified without the addition of sulfur.

Château Le Puy, Famille Amoreau de père en fils depuis 1610. Not Bordeaux made like thirty years ago, but Bordeaux made like 100 or 200 years ago. No chemical sprays (biodynamic culture) in the vineyard, no additives during the vinification (neither sugar, yeasts, sulphite or other things), aging on old 'foudres' and barriques, not filtered. Château Le Puy is one of the few Bordeaux that you will find in hip wine circles on the tasting table between natural wines, Jura, Beaujolais and Loire. The label says - Expression originale du Terroir and that is not an empty marketing slogan. Château Le Puy : the Bordeaux for the post-Bordeaux era.

Vineyard for 2020 Chateau Le Puy Cuvee Barthelemy

Château Le Puy is not just a Bordeaux wine, but a Bordeaux made as one from 100 or 200 years ago. No chemicals (biodynamic culture) in the vineyard, no chemical additives during vinification (neither sugar, yeasts, sulphites or other things), aging on old 'foudres' and barriques, not filtered. Château Le Puy is one of the few Bordeaux that you will find in hip wine circles on the tasting table between natural wines, Jura, Beaujolais and Loire. The label says - Expression originale du Terroir and that is not an empty marketing slogan. Château Le Puy: Bordeaux for the post-Bordeaux era.

The Amoreau family has been producing biodynamic wines (without the addition of fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides) since the 17th century and does not even add sulfites (since 1998). These unfiltered wines come from vines over 50 years old. They turn out to be really young when tested and have a long storage capacity. In addition to the Ecocert (2012) and Demeter (2013) labels, the Château Le Puy also received Nature et Progrès (2013) and Productions végétales certifications, all of which guarantee that the wine is grown in the most natural way possible.
