Cussac-Fort-Médoc, France

A Historic Médoc Wine Estate Embracing Tradition and Sustainability

Château Lamothe-Bergeron is a historic Médoc wine estate with roots dating back to the 15th century. Recognized as a leading Cru Bourgeois Supérieur since the 19th century, this status was reconfirmed in 2020. The estate’s rich history includes ownership by the Lauste and Martel families, as well as Jacques de Bergeron, an innovative figure who experimented with viticulture techniques at Lamothe during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

By 1845, Lamothe-Bergeron was regarded as the finest wine of Cussac, and in 1868, a new château was constructed, reflecting the architectural aspirations of the Second Empire. The estate’s prestige continued to grow, and by the early 20th century, it became known as “Lamothe de Bergeron.”

From 1970 to 2010, the estate changed hands three times, leading to a restructuring of the vineyard, an adjustment of grape varieties, and renovations to the winery facilities. In 2015, following 18 months of restoration, Lamothe-Bergeron opened its doors to wine tourism, offering a unique visitor experience that attracts 8,000 visitors annually.

Committed to respecting biodiversity and protecting its community, Lamothe-Bergeron received the High Environmental Value (HVE) certification in 2018. The 67-hectare estate comprises 52% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot grape varieties. The resulting wine boasts a rich, dark taste, balancing classical elegance with sensuality.

Meticulous grape sorting precedes tailored winemaking processes in stainless steel and cement vat houses. Wines mature for 12-18 months in carefully selected oak barrels in the estate’s expansive cellar. Lamothe-Bergeron’s wines complement classic and inventive cuisine, pairing well with hard cheeses like farmhouse cantal, beaufort, mature gouda, and vintage comté.

A visit to Lamothe-Bergeron offers a journey filled with rich experiences, a deep connection to the chateau’s history, and an opportunity to discover its commitment to preserving tradition while embracing sustainability.
