In 2002, the weather conditions were not very favorable for the development of the vine. March and April have stood out dry with high monthly average temperature, but with significant differences of average daily. Sunny warm days, due to the rapid flowering vine in early June, were replaced by rain and a cold snap that badly affected the Merlot. July and early August were cool with a moderate amount of moisture. In the following months to install solar weather, which made it possible to get a good healthy crop maturity with the necessary level of polyphenols. Performed manually harvest was completed on 10 October. Each variety vinified separately so as to reflect the terroir to preserve flavor and aroma characteristics of the grapes.
In 1997, Madame de Lencquesaing, owner of Chateau Pichon Longueville Komtess de Lalande, acquired Château Bernadotte in the commune of Saint Sauveur. Madame de Lencquesaing attracted soil quality plateau consisting of a thin layer of gravel on clay, as well as its location near the area of Pauillac. Finally, it gave her the opportunity to diversify the range of wines and price range. Château Bernadotte was built in 1860 and named in honor of the French Marshal Bernadotte, whom Napoleon I appointed by the Supreme Prince, and in 1818 he was elected to the Swedes as a receiver of King Charles XIII, who died without an heir.
At the time of purchase of the castle vineyard was in poor condition. Therefore, in 1998, Madame de Lencquesaing and her team have made a significant investment not only in the Bernadotte castle, but in the vineyards. Studies have been conducted soil replaced and replanted vines. Now vineyard extends over 35 hectares. Were also built new buildings for wine storage. Who can say with certainty that the Chateau is fully equipped with all necessary equipment and for the production of great wines.
Since 2007, Chateau Bernadotte and Chateau Pichon Longueville Lalande de Komtess are the property of the world-famous champagne houses Louis Roederer.
