Chateau la Tulipe Bordeaux Supérieur

Since 1994 we have been producing at Château la Tulipe, a red Bordeaux Supérieur in the traditional style of the region: strong, robust and with a lengthy oak ageing period. But times change.

When my son Klaas decided to get onboard the business after graduating from college, it was time for a major overhaul. We tasted new wines from different countries, with all sorts of different taste profiles. And for five years we worked on a major change of style, we planted new grape varieties, invested in hypermodern vinification machinery and use less oak barriques. We are also proud to be able to announce that our wine is now produced one hundred percent sustainably.

Personally I think it is the best wine we have ever made. Although I have to admit we have been very lucky this year, as vintage 2015 is considered in Bordeaux to be the best wine-year of the century. Allez, try it out yourself and make up your own mind.
