In Bordeaux Wine Country, Generations of Care at Château Haut-Bailly

Chateau Le Pape is a bed and breakfast close to Bordeaux, renovated, and impeccably styled, and owned by the owners of Chateau Haut-Bailly. The chateaus’s climate is amiable with a mixture of sunshine and humidity. Fossils have been extracted from the gravelly soil and are on display on the walls. Because of the insight of stewardess Alice Bellot des Minieres in 1872, the Chateau houses wines that date back 120 years. Over the years, the vineyard was neglected, but was resurrected by Daniel Sanders in 1955 and American Robert Wilmers in 1998. With great attention to the winemaking process and preservation of the Chateau’s rich past, Chateau Haut-Bailly continues to produce award winning, unique, wine.

Key Takeaways:

  • Château Le Pape is a B&B with an elegant guest house surrounded by the Château’s vineyards.
  • Located in the appellation of Pessac-Léognan, the climate is an ideal mixture of sunshine and humidity and the ground is a mix of sand and gravel.
  • Year after year the area creates good vintage of Haut-Bailly thanks to the winemakers’ careful grape selection, pruning, harvesting, blending and tasting.

“The heritage of Haut-Bailly, its winemaking traditions and its unique terroir have been respected at every step of the way, garnering kudos and appreciation amongst the small circle of great château owners.”
