“The vines produce a wine of character, finesse, elegance, highly enjoyable. It is ranked amongst the first growths of the region.”, Bordeaux et ses vins , Editions Feret, 1874.
Under our watch, we aim to live up to Chateau Biac’s glorious past by producing wines which will perpetuate the same values.
Patrick Leon oversees the making of our three red wines. His rich and varied experience is invaluable and together, we push the post further to reach the best expression of the year’s vintage. Every year, we listen to what the vintage tells us of how our “terroir” has fared that year. This is why we do not have a set blending recipe for our wines. For instance, the 2008 and 2011 vintages have a high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon; whilst the other vintages are predominantly rich in Merlot. At every stage of the vine growth and of the winemaking, we will try to fine tune the process so that what you will (hopefully) drink, will give you the most pleasurable memory of our wines.
Christine Sourdes is in charge of our sweet wine, not an easy task when you think that this fine nectar comes from, admittedly noble, rotten grapes. Our small production of Secret de Château Biac requires as much attention as its red brother! We like to think it is reminiscent of the soft breeze flowing uphill from the Garonne River, the balmy summer sunshine which bathes our Semillon grapes, and the wild flower meadow lying at their feet.
