Hi my name is Malika and I represent the 6th generation of our families winegrowing. I have been attached to our estate since I was a little “wild child” but as I grew older and more mature I developed a determination and passion found in the values of the Alienor to succeed.
I age Lescaneaut wines for the sake of authenticity and naturalness. Certified organic since 2009, I have also been applying biodynamic principles at the estate since the end of 2020 to enhance my terroir and closely support the cycle of my vines.
The wines of Castillon-Cotes de Bordeaux are gourmet and pleasant tasting wines. The uniqueness of Chateau Lescaneaut is that we have two types of complementary terroir, Clay on Limestone on our slopes and loamy-gravelly soils around the Chateau that overlooks the Dordogne River. Our Red wines are fine and elegant , with a beautiful freshness. This ensures them to blend and enhance the cooking of the « terroir » or more sophisticated cuisine. The aromas of red and black fruits mingle with the subtle woody notes. On the palate, the attack is supple with always a fine and delicate structure. “Our wine is Sun in a bottle”. open a Lescaneaut and you will feel a ray of sunshine”.
