It’s no surprise that Château Sipian has been recognized as a great estate on the Left Bank since the 1840‘s. With its classic Garonnaise soil of porous gravel and sand and its proximity to the river Gironde, this is the classic terroir for producing great, Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux. The Mehaye family purchased the estate in 1978 and Frederick Mehaye has been at the helm since 1989. Frederick farms his 25 year old vines of Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot naturally and makes the wine with just a bit of new oak so the great aromatic complexity and fruit inherent to this part of Bordeaux can shine through the wine.
Sipian has old vines, rooted in the classic gravelly soil of Bordeaux, creating a perfect setting for making medium bodied, aromatic Cabernet-Sauvignon based blends that drink well young, are fantastic at the table and age gracefully in a proper cellar.
