Vin Haute Valeur Environnementale

The Estate

On behalf of BWINE – Les Vignobles Mottet, ClimatePartner has calculated the carbon emissions for
the product Chateau la France, supported by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Product Life Cycle
Accounting and Reporting Standard (GHG Protocol). By calculating the product carbon footprint, it was possible to identify the potential for mitigating and reducing emissions and on this basis offset any unavoidable emissions. As a result, the product has become carbon neutral and designated as such.

Here are some actions that have been taken to produce this neutral carbon wine : 

  • Lightweight bottles
  • Eco-friendly and recyclable corks
  • Labels created from paper recycled from grape waste and using only bio-degradable ink
  • Winery’s suppliers are all chosen within a 50-kilometre radius from the production site to reduce overall carbon footprint
  • Creating an 84-ha forest on an abandoned agricultural land, planted with different local tree species and added other species to get a more resilient forest to answer today’s climate change issues

Tasting Notes

Brilliant purple colour.
The nose of subtile black fruits, plums and blackberries, with hints of spicies and flowers. 
A lively attack on the palate, offering a mouthfull of fruits with notes of spicies and vanilla. 
The wine is well-structured, smooth and very well-rounded.
