Chateau Leotins belongs to the Lumeau family since 4 generations. The vineyard is located at Sauveterre de Guyenne, in Gironde (33), around 35 km from Saint Emilion.
Sauveterre is the largest wine district of France, situated in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers region.
The Lumeau vineyards are one of the largest properties in the Sauveterre region.
From 45 hectares in the '80s, we count today more than 140, spread for the most part around the family house in Sauveterre de Guyenne. The clay-limestone soil typical of the region hosts the classic grape varieties of red and rosé Bordeaux wines: Merlot mainly, then Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
For the white wines of the Entre-deux-Mers appellation, we find equal parts of the famous Sauvignon and Semillon. Some of the vines can reach 50 years of age, thus offering very qualitative harvests.
The arrival of new generations is often synonymous with innovation. Also, Xavier wanted to diversify the grape varieties of the Lumeau vineyards, to bring complementary characteristics to the wines: Petit Verdot and Malbec.
