“To the south of Bordeaux, near Cadillac, Château de Ricaud offers a range of exceptionally diverse soils. Seduced by the tremendous quality potential of the vineyard and the property’s stunning architecture, Alain Thiénot purchased the Château in 1980.
In 2007, he elected to work in partnership with the Dourthe teams and an ambitious redevelopment programme ensued, transforming Château de Ricaud into a benchmark in Loupiac and creating a Côtes de Bordeaux wine to rank among the finest of the appellation.
Château Ricaud’s revival can be mainly attributed to Cadillac, in Côtes de Bordeaux. Here, the wines reveal the finest expression of Merlot cultivated on clay-limestone soils and Cabernet Sauvignon on gravel.
The consistently high standards of recent vintages have made this a rising star in Côtes de Bordeaux, offering well-structured, complex wines, combining intense fruit with lovely soft character.”
