Producer: Jean-Baptiste Duquesne is a Bordeaux Pirate, shaking up the conventions of Bordeaux bureaucracy and challenging the status quo. After his selling his French cuisine recipe sharing website, he wrote the book "Bordeaux: Une Histoire de Cépages" which is a detailed history of 19th Century grape varieties in the Bordeaux.

Obsessed, he turned Château de Cazebonne into the largest library of ancestral grape varieties, such as: Mancin, Castets, Bouchalès, St-Macaire, Jurancon noir, Mérille, Béquignol, Pardotte, Gros Cabernet, Petit Péjac, Sauvignonasse, Penouille…. He has already planted 26 of the recognised historical varieties and aims to have all 57 planted by 2030...


Vinification: Harvested 30/8/22 from very ripe Sauvignons. Slow pressing then settling for 24 hours at 12°C. Alcoholic fermentation with natural yeasts and malolactic fermentation. Unfined, unfiltered. Bottled in April 2023.


Tasting: Un Sauvignon vendangé bien mûr, 5 jours de fermentation sur pellicules, puis écoulage et fin des fermentations. Juste une petite bombe!
