Château LanscadeEscoussans | Bordeaux
This is true Bordeaux countryside, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, where families make wines for neighbors and friends to enjoy with local cuisine.
Since 1989, winemaker Laurent Descorps has crafted just one Bordeaux wine—a bold, juicy red rich in plum and red berry flavors—from his 25 acres.
The family practices sustainable farming, following organic guidelines as much as possible and avoiding in general chemical treatments.
The village of Escoussans, not far from the Gironde river, has alluvial soils with a mix of clay and limestone subsoils. Vines are on average 30 years old.
Grapes are destemmed, and fermented on selected yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats. Wine is aged in French oak barrels.
