The winemaker

The History of Chateau Lamothe Bergeron


Château Lamothe Bergeron already existed in the Middle Ages, but only the plans remain from that time. The history of the domain is better known from the 15th century. It belonged to the Lauste and Martel families until it was sold to François Jacques Marie de Bergeron (1760 - 1810). This agronomy enthusiast traveled and published the results of his discoveries in scientific journals. When he died in 1810, he left a wine estate of great quality, producer of Médoc wines, already famous.

The new Château Lamothe Bergeron was built in 1868, by a descendant by marriage of Jacques Bergeron. The estate then changed owners several times. In 2014, the castle is completely restored and the vineyard restructured. The work lasted 18 months. Since 2019, Château Lamothe Bergeron belongs to CAPSSA, a provident institution.

The Chateau Lamothe Bergeron vineyard


The vineyards of Saint Julien, Lamothe Bergeron and Margaux face the river. The vineyard of Chateau Lamothe Bergeron occupies the best gravel of the Gironde estuary, on a perfectly drained land with the best sunshine.

The vineyard covers 67 hectares: 52% are planted with Merlot, 44% with Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% with Petit Verdot and 2% with Cabernet Franc. The estate works to respect biodiversity, which has earned it HVE (High Environmental Value) certification since 2018.

Chateau Lamothe Bergeron Cru Bourgeois 2018


The wine is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. The very wet winter and spring earn the 2018 Cru Bourgeois a wonderful aromatic complexity. Ripe black and red fruits dominate and bring a delicious roundness, backed by a solid structure.

Its color is an intense ruby and the wine offers a balanced palate, with silky tannins that make it very pleasant. It has a fresh finish. It is a wine that has personality and adapts very well for aging. It goes wonderfully with roast rack of beef, as well as white meats with mushroom sauce.

Château Lamothe Bergeron Cru Bourgeois 2014


The 2014 Château Lamothe Bergeron Cru Bourgeois benefits from the mild spring and early summer weather, followed by the hot, dry summer. It offers a fresh bouquet, scented with red fruits and black currants.

It has the particularity of being also perfumed with the scents of a slightly earthy undergrowth, which gives it a great originality. This structured wine with crisp tannins accompanies your meats in sauce, as well as braised pork filet. It is one of the wines that can be kept for a long time, allowing it to improve.
