Château LEYDET VALENTIN is located on 8.87 hectares in Saint-Emilion, at the border with Pomerol. This farm was bought by one of Frederic’s ancestors. The estate was subsequently passed down by women of each generation. This is why the name of the owners has unceasingly changed since the 19th century. Frederic’s father Bernard LEYDET began running the estate in 1962 with only few hectares then, and bought a few more hectares up until the time of his death in 2006, improving the quality of the vineyard and wines produced.
The Leydet family is passionately caring for the vines of this exceptional Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. In order to presearve the authenticity of the terroir, the vineyard is in Organic Agriculture since 2015, and the vinification is done in the greatest respect of the grapes. This wine is aged in barrels on fine lees.
The vintage 2020 has a fruity nose with notes of ripe blackcurrant. On the palate, the wine is savory and long. Nice notes of pulpy blackberry, raspberry and touches of violet associated with wafts of chocolate, licorice stick, hazelnut, coffee and cardamom.
