A beautiful stuffed guinea fowl, a roast veal with cloves garlic confit shirt … Gourmet and generous dishes that we like to enjoy and share a Sunday with family … Here are some dishes with which Château Sigognac will express all its power and character Medoc.
Pleasant fruit that is reminiscent of ripe raspberries and blueberries. The tannin structure is fine and discreet on the palate, the finish pleasant and soft. A Bordeaux with a great personality with at least 15 years of storage potential, but which is already fun and can therefore be drunk very well without food.
About Château Sigognac
Situated just outside Saint-Yzans de Medoc and with the estuary immediately to its East, the 47 hectare vineyard of the Chateau Sigognac is planted in clay-chalky and clay-sandy soils which are characteristic of the Medoc region.
Since the Chateau's change of ownership in March 2009, the vineyard has been subject to a significant amount of reorganisation and improvement. This has included replacement planting, improvements to the soil and the renewal of the older sections of the vineyard. In each case the overriding objective has been the same €“ to improve consistency and quality.
The average age of the vines is between 35 and 40 years. The planting is traditional with a density of 5,500 vines per hectare. Caring for the vines is an ongoing process and all the stages of the growing cycle are treated with equal care: pruning, leaf thinning, green harvest, removal of new shoots and finally the harvest.
