Chateau d'Agassac wines
In our quest to find the best of each region, we met the manager of Château d’Agassac last year at Vinexpo and tasted his wines – Château d’Agassac, the flagship wine of the domain that we already knew well, and also their other wines. We loved how he tries to think out of the box and make wine around the pleasure to drink rather than doing them for wine critics. Chateau d’Agassac has been one of the best value Crus Bourgeois in Haut-Médoc for years and the second wine L’Agassant is a perfect example of an unconventional Bordeaux that is round, fruity and not pretentious.
It is also worth mentioning that the whole vineyard was converted into “viticulture raisonnée” in 2004, which consists in reducing the use of chemical products and replacing them by alternative and natural methods to protect the vines.
Now a word about our selection: we have chosen Chateau d’Agassac 2007 because it is their best vintage among the ready-to-drink ones, L’Agassant 2010 for its young and modern style, and Pomies-Agassac 2011 as a great entry level bottle to discover the Haut-Médoc appellation.
