Château d’Agassac Cru Bourgeois – Haut-Médoc


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The terroir of Agassac is located in the southern part of Ludon-Médoc divided between two gravelly ridges and a zone of sandy gravel. The castle was built in 1238 by the Gaillard family of Gassac Agassac, and it is then a seigneury that extends over 800 hectares. The architecture is of feudal type with the medieval fortifications, his lord is vassal of the king of England. In 1580 the Pommiers family, one of whose members was president of the Parliament of Guyenne, modified the architecture of the castle in a Renaissance style.

The property then becomes a barony. In 1792 the Pommiers family planted the first vines on the estate. The marshes of the Medoc were drained in the 17th century, allowing the discovery of great terroirs. The old sheepfold is modified in chai. In 1841 Mr. Richier, one of the greatest French agronomists, invents and installs the trellising of the vine with wire. It makes its wine one of the most side of the place of Bordeaux. Castle Agassac is the precursor of this technique used worldwide today. The estate covers 43 hectares, with a 50% Merlot grading of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vines is 25 years old. The domain is in reasoned agriculture. The Château d’Agassac, the great wine of the Château, comes from the oldest vines in the estate and the best terroirs of deep gravel.

It is the archetype of the modern Medoc both structured and powerful but also balanced, fruity and with tannins without aggressive astringency. Wine made for cellaring, it will also delight lovers of middle-aged wines who are in love with fruit, material and balance. It is one of the best-rated and most awarded wines in Haut-Médoc.
