Château Haut Rian

This is an easy-drinking white wine. It is wonderfully rich and zesty with aromas of white flowers and a crisp, crunchy palate with flavours of fresh lemon.

The vines for this wine grow in sandy and clay soil, and the grapes are harvested at peak maturity, then fermented in stainless steel tanks and left on lees for four months.

The Château has been recently taken over by Pauline Dietrich from her father, Michel. Pauline has converted their vineyard to Terra Vitas and Bee Friendly status, and the wines from this property set the benchmark for good value wine in Bordeaux.

Pauline Dietrich
Pauline Dietrich is the second generation of her family to make wine at Château Haut Rian, but her pedigree as a vigneron goes back much further. Her parents, Michel and Isabelle Dietrich, come from traditional winemaking backgrounds. Michel's family are winemakers from Alsace, and Isabelle's ancestors are an old Champagne family.

Château Haut Rian is a family property of 80 ha located about 30 km southeast of Bordeaux in the Premieres Côtes De Bordeaux and covers the hilly banks of the Garonne and includes a mix of different soil types. Château Haut Rian grow their white grapes on silty clay soils, while grapes for their red wines are grown on clay-limestone terroir.

Before starting Château Haut Rian in 1988, Pauline's father set off to build on his family winemaking experience and oenological qualifications, spending seven years working in an Australian winery. This diverse experience in the distinct regions of Alsace and Australia made Michel a very skilful artisan. It's this skill that allows Château Haut Rian to produce a range of meticulously made wines at a great price.
Several Wines Direct sales representatives have worked at Château Haut Rian during the harvest, so we've seen firsthand the care and attention that goes into producing these fantastic wines. If you want to gain a new appreciation for fantastic Bordeaux, there's nothing better than tasting Château Haut Rian.
