Chateau de Leberon

Vin Muté de Gascogne

  • Biodynamic
  • Organic
The phrase “vin muté” sounds weird, like there’s something wrong with the wine. However, there’s nothing wrong — and everything delicious — with this slightly sweet wine produced by Chateau de Leberon. Fourth-generation grape grower Jean Rozès used organic and biodynamically grown Merlot juice, blended in a solera, and fortified with 3 year old Armagnac from their Ténarèze estate. The resultant wine is unfiltered and left to rest on its lees before bottling. Plush and soft, but not cloying, this dessert red is less sweet and lighter than port. Notes of blackberry and black cherry are balanced by bright acidity and a smooth, long finish, making it a great complement to cheese, paté, and desserts.

Chateau de Leberon

Château de Léberon is 12-hectare estate in the Ténarèze appellation of Armagnac with roots dating back to the 13th century, to the Hundred Years War. Purchased in 1939 by Osmin Rozès, the estate is now run by fourth-generation grape grower Jean Rozès with his daughters Sophie and Caroline who are reinvigorating the estate, applying organic and biodynamic practices in the vineyard. The old vines of Château de Léberon benefit from its exceptional microterroir: it has its roots plunging into the gritty sand of the alluvial deposits of the River Baïse’s terraces. The vines coming from this land are producing very textured, aromatic fruit, with significant body and richness.
