It is close to the most prestigious wine propriety of Léognan (Chevalier, Château Malartic-Lagravière and Château de Fieuzal estates/domains).

Artisan winemakerBorn in 1970 to a family of wine dealers from Corrèze, Vincent Plantade developed a passion during his childhood for professions of the earth and decided very early on to devote his life to viticulture. His father, Alain, owned an old sheep pen surrounded by a few acres of land in Léognan, which he then covered in grapevine. the young Vincent didn’t linger in taking over the domain after pursuing a winemaking-oenology course in the Médoc region at the young age of 18. His project of developing the family domain was particularly well-thought, as the parcels were ideally located in the golden triangle of the appellation Pessac-Léognan. A talented wine maker, Vicent Plantade now oversees the domain with a deft hand and with a meticulous care and constant attention towards the vines. Slowly but surely, the winery has grown for the last forty years based upon the principle of “produce less but produce better”.
It wasn’t easy to make it in the world of great wines of Pessac-Léognan. His challenge was to enable the recognition of the quality of his production amongst long time renowned Châteaux. For this, Vicent Plantade had an invaluable advantage: the exceptional quality of his terroir! Through his passion for the earth and his attention to the vines, the Château Haute-Plantade seduced an audience of connoisseurs in many countries.
In this sublime and respected terroir, an elegant, dense and voluptuous wine was created, associating “power, ambition, and sobriety”
