Product Description:

Located in the heart of Graves and built on the site of a 12th century fortress, Chateau de Landiras produces classic red Bordeaux of aromatic concentration & elegant structure. Owner Michel Pelissie has a keen sense of good food & good wine given his Perigord roots. Now retired from the architecture industry, Michel is realizing his dream of reviving an old estate & making excellent wines. The vineyards are sustainably cultivated (without pesticides or additional chemicals) on predominantly white gravel soils that Graves is known for. Fermentation is conducted via small temperature-controlled cement tanks -- The small vats allow for vinification of separate parcels and thus preservation of the terroirs of the chateau. After the assemblage is made the wines are aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
