Château Lamothe Guignard is part of the original Château Lamothe, which was qualified as 2nd Grand Cru Classé in 1855. At the beginning of the 20th century, the domain was split up and the vineyards were neglected, until it was bought in 1981 by Philippe and Jacques Guignard. They have replanted a large part of the vineyards, restored the buildings and invested in modern equipment for wine production. There are 17 hectares of vineyards, planted with 90% sémillon, 5% sauvignon blanc and 5% muscadelle. The grapes are picked in various 'tries' and then fermented in small oak barrels. The wine is aged for 12 to 15 months in oak barriques (25% new).
