Tasting Notes

Intense aromas, perfectly poised with blackcurrant and cedar, just the merest hint of mint and dried herbs. The palate is layered with cassis, cherry and raspberry across silky tannins with enduring freshness, giving it the poise for great ageing potential, although delicious already.

Producer details

Perhaps this vineyard should have been granted Grand Cru Classe back in 1855 but then it lacked the much needed contacts within the hierarchy of Bordeaux. Today, as one of the oldest Chateau in Medoc and as a Cru Bourgeois estate, it offers excellent value.

In the vineyard

Known as a vineyard comparable with its second growth neighbour Chateau Montrose and first growth Latour with its situation on the slopes leading down to the river Gironde. Sharing the same gravel and clay soils as found at Petrus This vintage was quite nerve-wracking, practically from beginning to end. Fine late-season weather in September and October saved this vintage. The key to success laid in the vineyard and in the considerable amount of work we put into it.

In the winery

Following hand-picking and selection of the grapes on the vines, they are de-stalked and carefully sorted once more. Fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled stainless-steel or concrete tanks. After blending, the wine is aged from 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 30% to 40% of which are new.
