Wines that roar with pleasure
The wines of Château de Lionne are blended from several grape varieties.
Our red wines are the perfect expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot drawing aromatic richness from the soil of Graves. Balanced, supple, fresh and fruity, the red wines of Château de Lionne are pleasurable drinking wines. Our reds are appreciated for their youth, but may also be enjoyed after a few years of aging.
Our white wine is made from Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. It is fruit forward with finesse and freshness. The white is both elegant and complex. There are aromas of citrus and white fruits, exotic notes blend with minerality that is typical of the soil of Graves. It is a real pleasure!
Graves appellation is not exclusively reserved for blends; and thus in 2014 Château de Lionne launched l’Envolée. A not so crazy idea to magnify this exceptional terroir through a wine made exclusively from Merlot. The success has been dazzling for this wine varietal, against the current of what we know Bordeaux to be.
L`Envolée merlot perfectly captures the beauty of Graves terroir. With fruit forward freshness, and a bright ruby red color, L’Envolée is perfect for any wine drinker.
