CHÂTEAU LA PIROUETTE 2009
Médoc Cru Bourgeois Red
Presentation of the estate
Château La Pirouette is located in the north of the Medoc on a great clay and silt with gravel terroir, typical of the region. In 1978, Yvan Roux started to replant the vineyard in order to take the best out of the terroir. Nowadays, his daughter Michele and his son Claude run the estate together. They take care of the family heritage while they try to evolve and progress. They constantly adapt their work to changing conditions they encounter each year. They consider as essential to work with their natural environment, and they are permanently in the quest for quality.
