The Chateau la Levrette delivers a Super Premium Bordeaux wine with a new estate vineyard strategically located in the right bank  Blaye appellation of Bordeaux. The family’s rigorous standards for growing the highest quality grapes and producing world-class wine with exceptional value are evident in its 7 hectare (17 acres) vineyard devoted to la Levrette. The very limited production at the Chateau, less than 2 000 cases a year, signifies its dedication to low-yield grapes and high quality wine.   This very rare wine is already featured in some of the most famous and demanding Michelin-starred restaurants as well as the finest wine retailers in Bordeaux and St Barthelemy.   This “Grand Vin de Bordeaux” is crafted as a very high-end wine and with characteristics typical of its terroir. While crafted in the Bordeaux style, the wine will surprise you with its robustness and balance, and it will satisfy you with its long-lasting and desirable finish. Read less
