Chateau Lamothe Bergeron Haut Medoc 2019 Sustainable 91JS
Lamothe-Bergeron is one of the historic Medoc wine estates and was already considered a leading Cru Bourgeois Superieur back in the 19th century, a status that was confirmed once again in 2020. Nestling between the terroirs of Margaux and Saint-Julien, Lamothe-Bergeron froms part of the closed circle of chateau with a river view. In other words, occupying the best gravels left by the Gironde estuary.
History of the Chateau can be dated back to 1868. A new Chateau built up up from the ground - a veritable jewel embodying the architectural dreams of the second empire. It was build during the time of Abdon d'Armana (1824-1906), husband of Caroline Le Quien de La Neufville, the niece by marriage of the last of the Bergerons. In that same year, the wine was mentioned in the second edition of the Feret guide as ranking first among the wines in the village. In order to capitalize on the prestige of a historic name, Lamothe became "Lamothe de Bergeron" at the beginning of the 20th century.
