Château Pardaillan

ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL HILLSIDES OF THE BLAYE REGION

 

Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux

An oaky and balanced wine

Built in the early 17th century, Château Pardaillan belonged to Louis d’Aulède de Pardaillan. Partly demolished during the French Revolution, it became the property of the Dupeyrat family, who gradually rebuilt it. The present-day château dates from 1802. It is a beautiful building protected by two towers, and surrounded by a terrace facing the village of Cars. This estate is situated on one of the most beautiful hillsides of Blaye.

Since 1975, vines at Château Pardaillan have been tended with a very environmentally-friendly approach according to the principles of sustainable viticulture. The steep slope makes this vineyard particularly challenging to cultivate. Its clay-limestone soil is particularity rich in clay. Merlot thrives here, and expresses itself beautifully in a strong, elegant wine.
