Château Haut-Blanville

Languedoc, languedoc France

We have been looking for a French Merlot for some time and this Merlot from Château Haut-Blanville finally meets all our requirements. Owner Bernard Nivollet is head of winemaking at the estate. The Merlot goes through whole bunch fermentation and is vinified and aged in stainless steel to retain a fresh bright fruit profile. The wine is very approachable with soft ripe tannins and a purity of red fruit that represents excellent value.

Established in the late 1990s, Château Haut-Blanville is a family-run domaine located in Pézenas outside Montpellier. Bernard and Beatrice Nivollet moved to the Languedoc from Paris in 1995 to realise their dream of becoming wine producers. Attracted by the region’s richly diverse soils, they settled upon the Languedoc Grés de Montpellier appellation. Bernard and Beatrice took up the challenge of creating their own estate, Château Haut-Blanville, and over the years have gradually selected and carefully built up a collection of parcels of vines across the region.

Château Haut Blanville has 40 hectares of vineyards across the Languedoc Grés de Montpellier appellation and 30 hectares under IGP. The warm dry climate is moderated by summer sea-breezes which encourage the grapes to ripen early and gives good freshness to the wines. All the vines are cultivated according to hybrid sustainable principles which combine Lutte Raisonnée, organic cultivation and biodynamics. With the aim to preserve the quality and diversity of the various soils, no chemical fertilisers are used in the vineyards.
