Chateau La Diligente
The estate has two different terroirs: one on the Puisseguin limestone plateau, producing Merlot grapes with striking minerality and remarkable elegance, and the other on the clayey slopes of the Listrac area, where the fruit is powerful and concentrated. The grapes are harvested at the peak of ripeness and the two wines are blended to reach a remarkable combination of strength and elegance.
The Lurton family is one of the most respected in all of Bordeaux. They have over 15 chateaus in their portfolio of properties and some very serious Grand Cru Classe, 2nd growth, and 5th growth properties to talk about. In 2010 I was interested in expanding to Bordeaux within the portfolio and came across the opportunity to work with them... the wines are all well priced, and well made. It is also great to have access to winery direct pricing on important properties like Durfort Vivens in Margaux!
