Description

Château Grandis became a family run estate in 1857 and the vineyards are made up of a modest 10 hectares which enables the family to maintain the strictest high standards both in the vineyard and the cellar. In 2005 Brice Vergez took over the running of the estate and has continued to practice the techniques of hand harvesting, hand pruning and racking from barrel to barrel.  He also prefers ploughing between the rows of vines rather than the systematic use of herbicides, promoting soil health wherever possible.


The vines are grown in gravelly clay and limestone soils and are planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Harvesting is done entirely by hand to maintain the quality of the fruit. The grapes are fermented in tank and transferred to barrel where the wine is aged for 16 months in French oak barrels before being bottled at the Château. 


Grandis has been a Cru Bourgeois property since the 1930’s and has maintained it’s status ever since by producing fabulous quality, classic wines.  Beautifully balanced cigar box and spice alongside dark fruits and finely balanced tannins.

2018 chateau saransot dupre, cru bourgeois superieur listrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!

2018 autocarro 27, setubal 75cl

Touriga Nacional

Herdade do Portocarro is a project that is based on a philosophy of production of finest wines in limited and exclusive quantities. These wines possess an intense and complex personality: they are tense and earthy, but also elegant and fresh. Located in the border between the beautiful Peninsula de Setubal and the intensely hot Alentejo plains, this 18 ha single vineyard has been planted on a hilltop facing South, 60 m above the river Sado. Both the rain’s draining and the sun exposure are excellent, it is surrounded by trees and benefits from the Atlantic Ocean’s cool influence.
