Tasting Notes

Good deep red colour with slight purple reflections. Fruity nose with aromas of blackcurrant and black cherry, discreetly oaked with a subtle note of menthol. Clean and full attack on the palate. Good concentration with smooth and well-structured tannins. A long finish, very elegant and upright.

Producer details

The winegrowing estate was formed in the 18th century around the remarkable château built for the Tronquoy family on a design by Victor Louis, the architect of the Grand Théâtre in Bordeaux. An elegant, white-stone country house typical of the region, its two side towers with their pointed roofs peep above the highest trees in the surrounding park. The estate went through several different owners until 1968, when it was bought by Jean Texier and his wife Arlette Castéja-Texier. She would run the estate for 40 years. In 2006, Martin and Olivier Bouygues discovered this little vineyard, historically reputed for having one of the finest terroirs in Saint-Estèphe. On specialist advice, they decided to buy the property, marking the start of a new era in its history. They then embarked on a large-scale modernisation programme which culminated in 2010 with the construction of a vast barrel hall and a new vat house equipped with a vertical press and 22 temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats.

In the winery

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks followed by 12 months ageing in barrel, 25% of which is new.
