Château Mancèdre

In a region where foreign investors rule, it is quite impressive to find a new, small, family-owned and operated winery. The Trocard family discovered that their grandparents had six hectares in Pessac-Leognan that were not planted! Jean Trocard invested in the family farm, planted vines and revamped the estate in 1993. With his experience at other estates, he is now crafting an exceptional Pessac-Leognan with finesse, spice and body. He green harvests to keep yields down and harvests by hand. The wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels (1/3 new). Ideally, Pessac-Leognan is kept for 5-6 years before opening the bottle, but the Mancedre is delicious young and shows great aging potential at the same time.
