Château Tanesse

Located on a high hillock among Langoiran’s sloping vineyards, this Bordeaux charterhouse was built during the second half of the 18th century by the Tanesse family. The property is surrounded by 30 hectares of vineyard atop very old foundations. Overlooking Langoiran’s medieval 13th-century castle, a magnificent panoramic view stretches from the edge of the Sauternais to the outskirts of Bordeaux while following the meanders of the Garonne River.

The product of an exceptional terroir, the red wines of Château Tanesse are characterized by their deep colour, their aromas of black fruit and a touch of particularly fine tannins.

The Bordeaux dry white is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle grapes grown on sloping vineyards. A mineral wine of great aromatic complexity.


DOWNLOAD THE TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION


The particular microclimate of the sloping vineyards overlooking the Garonne River allows for the growing of this sweet wine. The alternation of misty mornings and sunny afternoons favours the development of “noble rot”, a fungus that allows for the concentration of sugars, aromas and flavours in grapes. Late harvests are carried out by hand in several waves or “sortings”.

The alternation of misty mornings and sunny afternoons favours the development of “noble rot”, a fungus that allows for the concentration of sugars, aromas and flavours in grapes. Producing this special cuvée “Palissades” reflects the wish from the Vignobles gonfrier to respect the particularity of the soils and the terroirs. Thus, “Palissades” wines bear the name of the two plots, adjoining and located further down the charterhouse, from where those wines are from.
