As one of the oldest family-owned vineyards in the region, Château Les Vieux Ormes has seen passion and know-how transmitted from father to son for six generations of the Garde family. Located on an enviable terroir of large gravels and clay, Château Les Vieux Ormes is a lovely example of this often underestimated appellation

The vineyard, which boasts an average vine age of 35-40 years, is maintained traditionally (tilling of the soil, manual de-leafing, green harvests). The grapes are harvested at full maturity and sorted manually before being vinified, plot by plot, in small thermo-regulated stainless-steel vats with the goal of preserving the full character of the fruit.

Vineyard size 15 hectares (37 acres)

80% Merlot – 10% Cabernet Franc – 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Soil types; Clay and gravel

A Merlot dominant style, from a lesser known region on the right bank. Just right for drinking now. Offers complex and inviting aromas. Vibrant palate that offers plenty of supple fruit and sweet spices. A whole wine with layered tannins, dry and satisfying.
