Château Haut-Blanville

Languedoc, languedoc France

Established in the late 1990s, Château Haut-Blanville is a family-run estate 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. Over the years, they have gradually selected and carefully built up a collection of parcels of vines across the region.

Château Haut-Blanville now has 40 hectares of vineyards across the Languedoc Grés de Montpellier appellation and 30 hectares under the Pays d’Oc IGP. The warm, dry climate here is moderated by sea breezes, which encourages the grapes to ripen early and gives good freshness to the wines. All of 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.

Bernard is head of winemaking at the estate and takes great pride in his work. The Merlot goes through whole-bunch fermentation and is vinified and aged in stainless steel to retain a fresh and bright fruit profile. The wine is very approachable with soft, ripe tannins and a purity of red fruit that represents excellent value.
