The Château and its walls date respectively from the eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries. Their thick, sandy soil of ‘graves’ (a mixture of sand and clay) constitutes a highly favourable base for viticulture. Composed of Merlot, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot, the division of grape varieties, meticulously maintained, has been chosen to harness the very best of this potential.The time-honored Bordeaux alludes aromas of dried cassis, black cherry, pipe tobacco, and woods smoke waft from this elegant wine. In the mouth more dense, dark plum fruits come to the forefront followed by a heady wall of ripe tannin. Cellar-worthy but ready to drink as of 2019.
Pairings: Ribeye steak, bone in leg of lamb, venison, french cheese.
