AOC Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux
"Its aging is carried out with our best plots of vines with respect for tradition and the product, long aging in Bordeaux barrels in French oak barrels, giving it the finesse and suppleness of a very great wine.
It is a wine that is particularly close to my heart and that I want to share with my friends around the world. "
A Puy under the sign of Love
Château Puy de Lignac is one of our two jewels in Côtes de Blaye.
It is located on the southern slopes of the Blayais, with a breathtaking view of the Gironde estuary.
Its existence dates back to the planting of the first vines in this area.
As its name suggests, its vines are located at the top of a hill or "Puy" in local jargon.
The property also has a "well", an element that can lead to confusion ...
The acquisition of this vineyard was made as a wedding gift from Albert for his beloved Alison.
Indeed, in 2006 after years of marriage, Mr. Schweitzer decided to offer a vineyard to his wife in honor of his love for her.
