Château Andoyse du Hayot has belonged to the du Hayot family for generations. It is situated in the heart of Haut-Barsac on a splendid clay and limestone soil, with perfect exposure. The vine is 35 years old on average. Over 20 hectares our vineyard is planted with the traditional Sauternes varieties: 90% Sémillon and 10% Sauvignon. The hand-picking harvest lasts 5 weeks; the “successive sorting” method means 2 to 4 pickings for each plot. Vinification is done through fermentation inside thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks and ageing lasts 2 years in stainless steel tanks. They deeply respect the traditions that have contributed to the renown of Sauternes wines, but their estate also boasts some of the most modern winemaking techniques which help them further develop their wine’s outstanding subtlety and unrivaled bouquet.
