Bordeaux - France
The twin brothers David (left) & Laurent (right) Siozard are now the 6th generation of this wine family in Bordeaux and own different domains in this top area. Sharing the same passion, each one is playing its part and is working with the same ambition/goal/aim: to produce a range of quality Bordeaux wines that will be the most pleasant to you!
Ipsum is a piece of text that actually has no meaning and was used by letter setters not to divert attention from the form and style ... Just as with them, the wine is central.
With their different domains, they have a variety of terroirs from this top region. Moreover, all vineyards and accommodation were also adapted to the needs of our time. The vineyards meet the highest qualitative requirements and strictest ecological standards (Since 2016: Terra Vitis certificate). In addition to their Châteaus in Entre-Deux-Mers and Barsac (Graves), they also produce a series of tasty monocepages, which is not obvious in a typical "assembly" appellation such as Bordeaux.
All of them are wonderful interpretations of Bordeaux's most famous grapes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and even the original Bordelese and cast-off grape Carmenère reveal their unadulterated character through a modern and contemporary range of 4 wines. Moreover, the Merlot is without added sulphites.
