Deemed to be one of the leading Cru Bourgeois Supérieur wines of the 19th century, a status retained today, Lamothe-Bergeron has always been a benchmark Haut-Médoc wine..
Our estate’s winemaking history began with Jacques de Bergeron – the enlightened scientist acquired the estate in 1773. He was interested in anything relating to nature and agronomy: fertilizer, exotic trees, acacia, insects, and the list goes on.
He was also passionate about growing vines, and this was a place where he could conduct his experiments. He published a study on ways of grafting vines in Bordeaux which would eventually give rise to the Bergeron method, a method which was still being used in the early 20th century.
