A philosophy of authenticity and true partnership from vineyard to cellar to bottle.
The Yves Glotin Collection is a collaboration of passionate winegrowers from Bordeaux family estates that share common values of identity, terroir respect, environmental consciousness, and generational expertise. Jointly crafted by Yves, these wines adhere to stringent qualitative specifications, helping these estates to reach their full potential. It is a true partnership from vineyard, to cellar to bottle.
Each bottle within the Yves Glotin Collection is a testament to the winemaker's art, paying homage to another with a unique signature. Produced in limited quantities and naturally unique, these indulgent wines offer a delightful moment of shared pleasure. For the first time in Canada, we are proud to introduce the following estates:
Nestled in the Médoc on Bordeaux's left bank, Château la Douce spans 20 acres of Merlot vines, exuding a captivating charm and sophistication. The name "La Douce," meaning plush, aptly complements the wine's character. Crafted exclusively from 100% Merlot, this wine embodies a smooth and velvety style that perfectly defines its essence.
Situated on the Montagne Saint-Émilion plateau, Château Grand Barrail, translating to "large plot" in Girondin patois, graces two picturesque parcels totaling 7.5 hectares planted with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This right bank Bordeaux is a delightful wine, boasting a harmonious balance, offering a textured and compelling expression of its terroir.
Château Bel Rose has belonged to the Lacour family for three generations. This 5-acre property in the Lalande-de-Pomerol Appellation is now cultivated by Bernadette Lacour. A woman of commitment, she takes the challenges of the vintage every year to enhance this exceptional terroir. Made from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this wine promises a luscious experience.
Emblazoned with the distinctive coat of arms of the Glotin family as a symbol of quality assurance, the elegant and distinguished pre-Napoleon style bottle stands out on any table or shelf. Each bottle, meticulously numbered, serves as a reminder of its exclusive and high-quality production.
Spanning both left and right banks, the Yves Glotin Viticulteur Collection delves into the richness and diversity of the Bordeaux appellations. Each wine undergoes specific aging to extract its utmost potential, resulting in wines of outstanding expression, gourmet richness, and unapologetic authenticity. Elevate your wine experience with the unparalleled craftsmanship of the Yves Glotin Collection.
