Château L’Escart was built in the 18th century and is located in the little town of Saint Loubes surrounding the Dordogne river. The Laurent family has been sharing their passion for wine for decades, through the cuvées of Château l’Escart, produced from their one piece of 37ha of vineyards in Saint-Loubès. Gérard and his team know that greatness in wine depends essentially on the greatness of the grapes. This is why they take really good care of the vineyards, in order for the vines to naturally resist parasites with as little treatment as possible. They know how important it is to respect the land that doesn’t belong to them. Thus, each harvest keeps the full expression and richness of the terroir. As they say at Chateau l’Escart: “Making great quality wines and respecting the land that we are borrowing from our children”. It is precisely for this reason, and their strong relationship to their terroir, that they decided to convert the vineyards to Biodynamic farming. This philosophy continues in the cellar, where only wild yeasts is used in the fermentation.
