Château Haut-Garriga Semillon

From the Barreau family’s 6th generation estate in Entre-Deux-Mers. The little known Semillon variety makes up this rich, dry Bordeaux white wine. The 100% Semillon is fermented in stainless steel tanks and is temperature-controlled to protect the natural aromas from oxidation — ageing on fine lees for three weeks. The Barreau family is committed to biodiversity. All this leads to a wine that is bright and full of citrus and grapefruit, developing into zingy lemon curd and a very long finish.  (Organic Methods, Vegan).

Alain Barreau

For six generations the Barreau family has resided in the commune of Grezillac. To this day they continue their tradition of winemaking and own both Château Haut-Garrigaand Château Coitreau. The vineyards are located on the highest slopes overlooking Saint-Émilion.

Château Haut Garriga is unusual in being 100% Semillon, the typical Bordeaux blanc being a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Mary Dowey was so taken with this wine that she commented 'I don't think I have ever come across a white Bordeaux that offers better value'. Anyone looking for an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, while not straying too far off the mark, will be well rewarded with this 'immediately likeable' wine from Entre-Deux-Mers.

Chateau Haut Garriga

We manage 172 acres divided into two chateaux and seven different varieties of vines. We are working with a large diversity of terroirs and so we are producing a large range of wines. We strive to protect our forests and our environment.
