Winery Info/ Brand
Château Bernadotte sits on fine, gravelly soil that formerly had the right to the Pauillac appellation and formed part of a Cru Classé. The property was purchased in 1996 by Madame Lencquesaing, who also owns Pichon-Longueville-Comtesse-de-Lalande, and has experienced a rise in quality under her ownership.
Region Info/ Origin
Situated in the Haut-Médoc, west of the river are the communes Listrac & Moulis. Between these two appellations and the river lie many Médoc chateaux producing delicious, Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines, often at a good value. Wines of the Médoc and Haut-Médoc appellation are less expensive, yet delicious, ways to experience the left bank of Bordeaux. Most are not as complex or age-worthy as those wines from the smaller communes along the riverbank, but many are great everyday wines, particularly suited for enjoying with food.
