  • What was that for a great day, full of hospitality, culture and taste sensations. Arrived early in the morning, the owner of the Castle and the estate opened the large entrance gate us warmly, because they could hear from inside German voices. The germanophile owner speaks several languages fluently and impresses with its authentic warmth. After a short tour in the Castle, we took in the dining room and waited for her son, who takes care of the vines and the ripening process. A family business! The son, who radiates the French southwestern mentality, impresses with his calm and patience. When he talks about his wine, his eyes sparkle. If he teases all the subtleties in the fermentation process, loses itself positively in the biological details and is soon no longer to brake, you can feel the warm touch of his passion. That's genuine passion in its purest form. These are practised beliefs which is already philosophy. That he knows to share this also konvivial in English provide all the nuances and thus pick up his visitors, is impressive and makes the experience memorable. That the vines only natural without chemical AIDS be so revised pesticides come from and the pressed grapes ripen later in their own yeast, speaks for the quality of the wine and the owner who is not interested in quantitatively from the vines to get the maximum, but high to lift his wine level, thus perfecting the taste another. It's not about the money, but to the taste. A beautiful approach and life's motto for the Chateau Lafitte, which has received many different prices and organic seal for the strenuous and pure procedure. And the owners keep right with its biological approach. You make the right choice. Because if one has once tried this special wine, when he caresses the palate sweet and unfolds all its flavors on the palate, then man, why is worth this cost and time game-process, then we directly know why wine can be philosophy. Never we have drunk a wine, so pure, so pure and absolutely. What quality! That additionally by the neighbors of fresh cheese has been enough us Brebis sourced, managed a good contrast to the wine. This hospitality, this culture and this unique taste experience must be shared.

  • A nice visit with Anthony, loving his vineyard and of his wine, he deals, not with the chemistry of the sulfates or of pesticides, but with the Alchemy of passion, know-how through patience and respect. His wine makes him well! Tasted in the sweetness of a twilight in August, after an exciting tour, it was a glare of the eye, the nose and the taste buds. Perfect balance in the Jurançon dry but fruity and sweet Jurançon, fresh. As for the "late harvest"... a marvel! Superb meeting human and wine.
