The typically Gascon Tannat grape is the cornerstone of the Chateau d'Aydie vineyards. Tannat based wines are aromatically rich with notes of dark and red berry fruit, as well as candied fruit. The estates' Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh wines are made from local grapes, Petit & Gros Manseng. These white wines, both dry and sweet, are perfectly balanced and aromatically complex. These climatic conditions, along with the diversity of the terroirs make for wines with lots of character.
