Vignobles Dubard – Château Laulerie

France

The Vignobles Dubard Estate, founded in 1977 by two brothers and their sister, now brings together four dynamic family-owned wineries located on the right bank of the river Dordogne in the South West of France: Château Laulerie, Château Les Farcies du Pech’, Château La Croix Romane, and Château Bel-Air/ Vieux Barrail.

Château Laulerie’s vineyards stretch out on the right bank of the River Dordogne in the Western part of the Bergerac wine appellation. This prized area, known as Montravel, is characterized by its calcareous-clayish hills, facing in an ideal southerly direction. The vineyard is made up of 50% white grapes (Sauvignon and Semillon) and 50% red grapes (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec). The vineyards are farmed following the principles of the program called “Haute Valeur Environnementale”, which is monitored by the French government.

Château Laulerie Cabernet Franc Juste Terre · Profile

Matured for 8 months in terracotta amphoras, this unique Cabernet Franc entices with a surprising density and silkiness on the palate. The natural intense and deep tannins of Cabernet Franc are refined by a limited oxygen input due to the porosity of terra cotta. A combination of velvet and elegance!
