Chateau Poesia

Erst seit 2014 Helene Garcin und Patrice Leveque die neuen Beitzer wurden, trägt das Chateau den Namen Poesia, vorher hieß es Haute Villet und gehörte der Familie Mendoza, die 1935 die ersten Reben pflanzte.

Die Weinberge von Chateau Poesia erstrecken sich über 8,8 Hektar und sind mit 70% Merlot und 30% Cabernet Franc bestockt.

Die Trauben werden nach der Handlese in Beton- und Edelstahltanks vergoren, der Wein reift für 18-24 Monate.

- THE WINE INDEPENDANT (1/2023): “… At Poesia, the argilo-calcaire (limestone-rich) terroir produces wines with an incredible balance of concentration, richness, and acidity,” added Hélène. “The limestone plays a role of a sponge, maintaining the freshness even when it’s very dry. The soil preserves the freshness and brightness of the fruit, giving lots of minerality.”
Since 2014, Hélène and Patrice have invested an incredible amount of time and money in building a new cellar and redeveloping the vineyard at Poesia. “We replanted 60% of the vineyard in 2015 and will continue with the rest in 2030,” said Patrice. “We planted a massal selection with 30% Cabernet Franc, and we might increase this percentage in the future.”
My tastings of recent vintages of Poesia reveal that this Grand Cru is starting to punch well above its weight.
And yet, Hélène and Patrice are among a growing number of producers who have opted not to apply for reclassification to Grand Cru Classé status. I asked Hélène why.
“At Poesia, the terroir speaks by itself through the wines. Also, my son wishes to take over the property in the near future, and we did not want to increase the price of the land, making it difficult for him to take over. …”
