Featured Producer

Chateau La Verriere is owned and run by winemaker Alain Bessette who is the fourth generation of his family to make wine at Chateau La Verriere. He is a talented man and his name is always on the short list for the ‘Talents de Bordeaux Superieur’ every year. The estate now convers 75 hectares and farms with a sustainable approach. It is located in Landerrouat in the far east of Entre-Deux-Mers, near the Dordogne region.

The Chateau’s star wine, like most in Bordeaux, is the red blend which is usually 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is always a wine that strikes the perfect balance between classic Bordeaux and a modern, lush style. It ages really well if you can keep your hands off it? The white (100% Sauvignon Blanc) is a unique and fresh expression of the grape whilst the Rose is everything you’d want from a summer rose. Alan also makes Rival Bellevue for us along with a cracking honey from his own bees!
