CHATEAU LA GALIANE

CHATEAU LA GALIANEChâteau La Galiane owes its name to Galian, an English general who commanded his troops here during their occupation of Aquitaine in the 15th century. This has been a family estate for several generations and has a surface area of 5 hectares planted with 45 % Merlot, 50 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% petit verdot, a combination which gives that perfect, classical balance which is so typical of the Margaux appellation. The vineyard is planted on slopes with fine gravel soils. These wine-growers from father to son produce La Galiane wines with a lovely ruby-red colour and a fine bouquet, very harmonious and smooth in the mouth. The tannins are fine and elegant and the wines have good ageing capacity.

Château Charmant has 5 hectares of vines which are a hundred years old and planted on fine gravel soils with lots of pebbles which are ploughed. Harvesting is done by hand and the vatting process is long in order to extract all the aromas before maturing the wine in barrels for 12 months. Château Charmant produces an aromatic wine with good colour, very complex and elegant, perfectly balanced, well-structured and supple at the same time and opening out delightfully with age.
