Chateau Destieux 2005
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The name Destieux comes from an old translation of "des yeux" or "eyes" suggesting the ability to see over the region, with its prestigious neighbouring vineyards and distant Dordogne river. The vines take root in a chalky-clay soil which is slightly covered by a narrow siliceous vein on the top of the plateau.
From more than 30 years, the Dauriac family has owned Chateau Destieux and made a commitment to improving its wine quality and production with one sole ambition: to create, from the vineyard to cellar a concentrate wine that is at the same time elegant and well-structured, an aristocratic expression of a "privileged terroir"
