Importer Note:

Laplace – a family firmly rooted in the Madiran terroir! Three generations have succeeded at Chateau d’Aydie since 1927. In the 1930’s, Frédéric Laplace was the first in the area to focus on viticulture in a countryside where mixed farming was very much the norm. In 1952, his son Pierre took over, continued planting vines and improving the vineyard and was responsible for the first estate-bottled wine at Chateau d’Aydie. The estate imposes itself as a leader in the Madiran appellation.

The typically Gascon Tannat grape is the cornerstone of the Chateau d’Aydie vineyards. Tannat based wines are aromatically rich with notes of dark and red berry fruit, as well as candied fruit. The estates’ Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh wines are made from local grapes, Petit & Gros Manseng. These white wines, both dry and sweet, are perfectly balanced and aromatically complex. These climatic conditions, along with the diversity of the terroirs make for wines with lots of character.

“These are truly wines for food; they’re not made for sipping in front of the TV” Jean-Luc Leplace Winemaker Ch. Aydie.

“Chateau d’Aydie is one of the most immaculately and professionally run domains in the whole of France,” Jefford The New France.
