The Gonet family has owned Vieux Landat, a small estate on the footsteps of Pauillac for over two decades, and their investment of blood sweat and tears has created something special. Vieux Landat's 2012, oozes soul—thanks at least in part to its perfect maturity. 2012 was a vintage of pure balance and elegance. That means that at a decade of age it is already popping, and it also means that the intrinsic value of this château is even more pumped up. Put simply, you can have a bottle of this that rivals Pauillac selling for over $100—for under $35!
Deep ruby color with intense notes of black fruits, blackcurrant and blueberry and hints of toast. The palate is elegant, fine, velvety and beautifully fresh. The tannins are silky and ripe with notes of blackcurrant and cherries and a hint of florals and beautiful toasty finsh. It will be the perfect accompaniment to a leg of lamb confit, game birds or pan-fried porcini mushrooms.

Château Vieux Landat is a small family winery that makes traditional wines and single-variety cuvees without the addition of sulfites. In summer 1999, Pierre Signolle took over the wine estate and with more than ten years of experience in viticulture. He decided to rejuvenate the estate, and between 2000 and 2010, he replanted the majority of the vineyards with Merlot. The winery building was also redesigned with the installation of all modern facilities and winemaking equipment. Low temperature vinification is made possible with temperature controlled vessels. In 2015, Sophie Signolle, Pierre’s wife, and their children, Diane and Nicolas, took over the handling of the winery and continue to make improvements to both the vineyards and the winery.
The winery, along with 18 hectares of vineyards, is present in Haut-Medoc. Around 10 hectares of vines grow in Saint-Estephe. Sustainable agriculture is one of the main aims of the winery. They experiment, try new things, and seek continuous improvement, for example, experiments like using sheep to help control grass or promoting vineyard biodiversity. Their company has recently obtained the level 3 HVE (High Environmental Value) certification and is now part of the Crus Bourgeois du Médoc classification. The main grape varieties they grow in their estate are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. These grapes are processed to make their organic and natural red wines.
