Mayne Lalande vineyard
Between the authenticity of the Médoc and the passion for the vines, the Château de Mayne Lalande has created a name for itself in the great wines of Bordeaux, thanks to the richness of its terroir.
An exceptional terroir
The wine-growing surface of the Listrac-Médoc terroir is made up of a croup of Pyrenean gravel, a layer of Garonne gravel and a clay-limestone plateau. These make the richness of this terroir and guarantee the unique aromas of the Bordeaux grape varieties .
These grape varieties are of a unique, typically Bordeaux quality. The Merlot is better suited to clay-limestone soils that give it its fruity and creamy taste. The Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of black fruit and impetuosity to dry gravel soils. The Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot , one fine and fruity, another intense and slightly spicy, are planted on the hottest and gravelly soils, with cycle rootstocks short to optimize their maturity.
The history of Mayne Lalande wine
Since 1975, after six generations, Bernard Lartigue, winemaker and master of the estate, has perpetuated the Médoc values specific to his family heritage in his Bordeaux vineyard . Rigorous, demanding, perfectionist, he is in constant search of excellence.
This leads him to obtain the best potential from his 22 hectare property, in order to develop a great wine , with a very long aging capacity while retaining its belonging to the terroir and developing a unique signature and identity.
Bernard Lartigue has brought all his expertise and daring to his production. Knowledge of its 42 plots and respect for traditional soil work allow it to achieve the right balance between powerful aromas and elegant structures. Behind its great wines hides the authenticity of the Listrac terroir .
The success of Mayne Lalande’s great wines
The wines of Château de Mayne Lalande have been presented to major restaurateurs, wine merchants and traders, in France and abroad, from the 1982 vintage. They have been introduced in the Place de Bordeaux since the 1995 vintage.
Their quality has won over traders, consumers and celebrities: Pierre Perret , Patrick Timsit , Catherine Ceylac , Jacques Higelin , etc., have appeared at the château.
True emblems of Médoc culture and gastronomy , these red wines are served at the table of the Presidency of the Republic.
Out of passion and a desire to share the richness of his terroir, Bernard Lartigue took up a new challenge by creating a guest house in the heart of the Mayne Lalande vineyard , for an exceptional moment in a calm and warm environment.
