The grapes to produce the Pessac-Léognan Château Lamothe-Bouscaut were gently de-stemmed and crushed before fermentation took place temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks with regular punch downs and pump overs. After fermentation the wine was then transferred to French oak barrels, one third of which were new, where it was aged for 12 months.
The Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted on well draining, deep gravelly soils and are on average 40 years old. The vineyards are farmed sustainably and pruning is carried out by hand by five vineyard workers. Vines are trained using the simple Guyot system and fruit is harvested manually.
Château Lamothe-Bouscaut is located in the village of Cadaujac and dates back to the 12th century. In 1999 it was acquired by its neighbour, Château Bouscaut, owned by Sophie Lurton and Laurent Cogombles. The vineyards measure a total of nine hectares and are mainly comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
