Château du Paradis is a single plot 8 hectares (19,6 acres) Garden of Eden located on a beautiful hill of gravel magically deposited by the swirling waters of the Dordogne river This mix of gravel clay and sand absorbs the heat during the day and reflects it back at night while the grapes ripen This reinforces the concentration, complexity and aromatic elegance of the wines Chateau du Paradis 2016 was describe by James Suckling (94/100) as "A big and juicy wine with lots of fruit and powerful tannins. Full bodied, velvety textured and culminating in a long and flavorful finish. Beautiful."

Winemaker Notes

Paul-Arthur and Thibault Bardet

Vignobles Bardet

by Paul-Arthur and Thibault Bardet
We produce very small quantity for this cuvée, depends on the vintage but never more than 5000 bottles. The winemaking is done in barrels,(‟vinification intégrale”). This way the wine is more intimately wooded making for a more balanced result. The technique also makes it possible to separately vinify the grapes from different areas of each plot ad to contribute rounded tannins to the wine. All our savoir faire and family experience are in this bottle.
