Domaine Vincent Lacoste
Now in its 7th generation Vignobles Lacoste is the story of a Bordeaux family through the ages. It was in 1856 that the family first bought vines and land on the highest bank of the Garonne 30mins SW of Bordeaux. Now, their 43ha of vineyards consists of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and the rest white varieties, predominantly Semillon. After generations of commercial growth, economic challenges and the technological revolution, it was in 2005 that Vincent (6th generation), decided a change was needed to move to organic viticulture. After years of chemical dependence and poor soil quality leading to a homogenised style of wine they achieved organic certification. No they make wines with gentle-extraction adding nothing but a little S02 at bottling if any. Fun, modern and approachable, the lables are an homage to the Nono the gardener at the Chateau for over 50 years.
