Fantastic Bordeaux – No Added Suphur, no residual sugar, vegan friendly
Château Bichon Cassignols is owned and run by Marie & Jean- François Lespinasse, who are passionate about ensuring the soil is a living ecosystem and that their wine is
For Jean-Fançois vinification is not about making a wine according to the latest trend, but working and respecting the close link with the terrior of Bichon Cassignols. The winemaking involves:
Native yeast, clarifications with organic vegetable or mineral fining agents, refusal to use technical flavour alteration and no chemical correction of the taste.
We love that while Jean-François follows the rules of the appellation taste and quality are his primary drivers. From the 2018 vintage “Le Petite Bichon” has been made without the addition of sulphates. Because of this he chose to bottle before the month of April and possible cellar warming, something that is not allowed under the Graves appellation.

Calvert Vineyard is located just two km east of the Elms Vineyard on Felton Road. The gentle north-east facing slope lies immediately below the hills of the Bannockburn Gold Sluicings, now a historic park. The tailraces of Bailey’s and Pipeclay Gullys’, that carried away massive amounts of sluiced gold workings, flank the vineyard to the west and east respectively and provide helpful cold air drainage to minimise frost risk. The vineyard land had been home to a few sheep, rabbits and briar bushes prior to the planting of vines in 2001. Felton Road started leasing the entire Calvert Vineyard in 2001 (10.2ha) and in 2013 purchased outright the Willows, Springs and Aurum Blocks totalling 4.6 ha of Pinot Noir.
