In 1993, the Cazeneuve family fell in love with a magnificent vineyard located in Moulis-en-Médoc. Convinced by the great potential of its terroir and by the captivating expression of Petit Verdot, they gave birth to Château La Garricq.
Nestled in the heart of the small town of Moulis-en-Médoc, the vineyard of Château La Garricq demonstrates that it has everything of a Grand Vin du Médoc, despite its small size of 3 hectares. Representing a variety of terroirs typical of the Moulis appellation, and a unique blend of grape varieties (58% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 13% Petit Verdot), Château La Garricq shows audacity and a strong personality.
Located halfway between the prestigious municipalities of Margaux and Saint-Julien, Moulis-en-Médoc asserts itself to the west of the majority of the Médoc appellations, adopting a more ‘continental’ position which feeds an exceptional diversity of terroirs. The vineyard of Château La Garricq, with its soils composed of ancient gravels and clay-limestone, favors the production of robust and structured wines, with excellent aging potential. Certified organic since the 2021 vintage, Château La Garricq is a living expression of the unique character of the Moulis-en-Médoc appellation and the environmental commitment of the entire Paloumey team.
Château La Garricq stands out for its complexity, elegance, and intensity. Over the vintages, it reveals a deep robe and a rich aromatic bouquet, combining black fruits, licorice, floral and woody notes. Its full-bodied personality is affirmed by a powerful structure, intensely juicy and fruityl, as well as remarkable aging potential.Its traditional aging of 12 months in barrels, a third of which are new oak, gives Château La Garricq richness and complexity. At Paloumey, we particularly appreciate tasting it with characterful meats, such as a matured sirloin of Bazas fattened beef, or with rather spicy veggie dishes such as chili sin carne.
