A sustainable vineyard in the heart of a prestigious appellation

Château Haut-Lagrange is located in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, on a gravel terroir that gives the wines their high quality.

An exceptional historic terroir

Château Haut-Lagrange is located in Léognan, south of Bordeaux, in the prestigious Pessac-Léognan appellation, a communal appellation of the Graves area.

Château Haut-Lagrange is a recent creation (1989). However, the map of Belleyme, in 1764, already mentions plants of vines at the current location of the property.

A grape of quality, base of the production of a great wine, is produced by a vine that receives nutrients coming from the soil and the subsoil as regular and limited as possible. The soil of Haut-Lagrange gravel is the archetype.

The climate is temperate and favorable to the vine by its softness and its regular hygrometry. He is greatly influenced by the nearby ocean, which brings a sea air sifted by the forest of the nearby Landes.

Sustainable agriculture

We observe the interaction of the plant in its environment and monitor its development by ensuring that no disease or other parasite can compromise the growth of our various grape varieties.

 

We use alternative methods whose impact on humans and the environment is as neutral as possible. For example, we use pheromones that interfere with moths, instead of using pesticides. If despite all the parasite is present on our parcels of vine, we use products that are organic certified or products of biocontrol. No carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic products have been used in Haut-Lagrange for many years.

We work regularly with the tools which allow the best development of the microfauna present in the first horizons of the soil. The settlement of the soil is also limited.

Biodiversity, sustainability and quality

To ensure biodiversity in the wine-growing landscape, we are developing agro-ecological infrastructures such as the planting of hedges, trees, and the maintenance of the borders of vine plots. We preserve a natural habitat for wildlife that coexists in our vineyard.

 

Our agricultural  practices above ensure soil sustainability so that future generations will exploit this wonderful potential, guaranteeing the production of high quality wines.

 

A sorting of each waste (wine effluents, viticultural effluents, paper, cardboard, glass ...) has been set up. It is stringent and allows to limit the environmental impact as much as possible.
