Listrac - Médoc

« The Listrac terroir, Bernard Lartigue explains, is geologically divided as follows :
50% of the vineyard area is composed of Garonne or Pyrénées gravel, and 50% of clay-limestone.
The Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are planted on warmer, gravel soil, with short growth cycle rootstock to optimise the maturation of this late ripening variety. The Merlot is planted on clay-limestone soil better suited for it.
In order to elaborate an exceptional wine, everything starts in the vineyard of course : great knowledge of the terroir and of each parcel, respect of traditional working methods (grass cover, soil aeration to support microbial life, limited crop load to ensure reasoned yield), green harvests, manual leaf-removal, parcimonious adding of pre-analysed manure, no use of nitrogen input. »
