FROM THE VINE TO THE GLASS

« The earth does not belong to us, we are only passing through... »

This sentence, often said by Gayraud family to the next generation, shows their agri-environmental ethic. From the soil work to the green harvest, the philosophy is to preserve the living balance in which the vines draw all the minerals they need.

THE CHATEAU LAMARTINE

The Château Lamartine is growing 37 hectares of vines located on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Terrace of the Lot Valley.

The greatest care is always given to the vineyard:

  • Working the soil guarantees the living balance from which the vines draw the minerals necessary for the complexity of great wines. 
  • Leaf removal and selection of the best bunches on the vines allow the regularity of a moderate yield necessary for the concentration of great wines.

THE TERROIRS

60% of 3rd terrace Clay limestone terroir – Elegant and complex wines

30% en 4ème Terrasse
Clay – Fresh and fine wines

15% en 2ème Terrasse
20% of 2nd terrace Clay silica – Fleshy and round wines

A TEAM WHO THINK HIGH-QUALITY

« "The best things that happen in a company are not the result of one man's work. It's the work of a whole team."

Lamartine owes its consistency to the people behind the bottles, a loyal team whose sole objective is the quality of the wines and the service.

THE VINO COLLECTION

"Our terroirs are our divine creators.
Each terroir gives its proper expression, its typicity. Our hands are just shaping the grapes, our palates control the ageing in the goal to get the purest expression from the terroir."
Lise & Benjamin
