Château Le Tertre de Leyle
Appellation : Côtes de Bourg
Vintages : 2018, 2019 and 2020
Located in the heart of the Côtes de Bourg appellation, the property is composed of a single block of land. Produced from carefully selected plots, this cuvée is the object of a special ageing process; the vanilla notes are fine and elegant.
Cradled from an early age by the rhythm of the seasons and the harvest, Pierre and Lucas, following in the footsteps of their elders, are busy in the vineyard and in the cellar. At the same time, they have to look after the vines and the wine in the vats. They are helped by Dominique C., Bertrand, and Rudy who do not shirk their efforts.
Philippe, the father, keeps a close eye on things and gives this young team his advice and passes on the experience he has acquired over the years: the 2020 vintage will be his 49th harvest !

The Côtes de Bourg appellation
The Côtes de Bourg extend over about fifteen kilometers along the right bank of the Gironde and the Dordogne. Its terroir is composed of clay-limestone, gravelly and sandy soils. The vines are planted on slopes with varied exposures, which explains the presence of numerous microclimates which influence the character of the wines. The vineyard, with a total area of 4,000 ha, mainly produces red wines (99%) with 3 to 8 years of aging. While Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are the most common, other grape varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Malbec can be used in the composition of the wines.
