Château Pertignas

Premier Bordeaux Wines

Pierre and Vincent Gauthier make Château Pertignas wines in Saint Vincent de Pertignas.

In this magnificent Entre-deux-Mers village, surrounded by rolling hillsides, forests, vineyards and historic buildings, Château Pertignas is an integral part of the landscape.

The personalities of these two winegrowers and their quality of life are characterised in their wines :

genuine, cheerful, sincere and straighforward !

The vines are made with great care and attention at every stage of production including working the soil and all manual work. In the winemaking process itself,

it is the local soil which helps determine the flavour of the wine more than technology. 

The reds, (fruity and strong), mature, are aged either in tanks or in new french oak barrels. 

The light fresh wines (rosé and dry white) are lively and rich. 

Our wines can be found in well known top restaurants, specialist wine shops and at various competitions.

 

The Rosé of Pertignas

Pierre and Vincent who both love this type of wine, make a rosé with a personal touch.

The colour, akin to both salmon and bright raspberry, doesn't at all succumb to the current trend of very pale rosés. We love drinking it !

With it's fresh taste and lovely look, it's the fruit of long passionate exchanges between these two winemakers.
