Estate Notes

Patrick Lesec Selections label encompasses estate-bottled wines, vinified in the cellars of the properties that Patrick Lesec has contracted to work with.

Patrick makes great efforts to search out the finest terroirs, the best soils with old vineyards — and thus the finest sources of grapes — in each appellation. These are often growers who own parcels of the best sites, but who may not bottle wine under their own label. Historically, these growers have sold their production to negociants who blend and market their own cuvées.

Once Patrick has located and made agreements with these growers, he works closely with them to produce the highest quality possible using his principles of non-interventionist winemaking.

Patrick's cuvées of Châteauneuf du Pape, clearly reflect the style of their respective appellations and terroirs. They have in common lovely aromatics, a distinctive purity of fruit flavors, soft, round tannins and long, pleasant finishes. His cuvées are fresh, natural and vibrant.


“Patrick Lesec directs/assists in the production of two cuvees of Chateauneuf du Pape. Fortunately, there are 500 cases of this powerful, rich, multilayered Chateauneuf du Pape that is bursting with black fruit.

"Patrick Lesec’s negociant operation is artisanal in nature, small, well-focused, and consistently reliable. The high point of the portfolio is unquestionably his Chateauneuf du Papes." Robert Parker
