“ Nature never deceives us, it is we who deceive ourselves.”
Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778)
Ecosystem : a system made up of an environment (biotope or habitat) and by the group of species (biocoenosis) living, feeding and reproducing within it.
The vines are indissociable from the local landscape; they are part of the familiar surroundings of Bordeaux in general and around Libourne in particular. Our vineyards have managed to keep their brooks lined with wild flowers, their plant-filled ditches, their hedgerows and trees, their grassy borders and lanes. Erosion is thus kept to a minimum and shelter and food are provided for animals, maintaining a diversity of flora and fauna.
The vast two-hectare park, surrounded by vines, with its remarkable ancient trees, has always made Château La Pointe’s estate a special quiet spot in the heart of a preserved environment.
Living and working in this haven on a daily basis, we learn or re-learn to protect its fragile equilibrium. The only rhythm possible is that of the natural cycle of Life itself.
