Description

Extremely attractive deep, dark ruby in colour. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend, sourced on the Chateau's stunning plateau, reveals a complex bouquet of red and black fruits, intermingling with smoky, mocha notes. The fresh, fruity and unctuous palate, with its remarkable fine-grained tannins, shows no hint of harshness, despite the wine's depth and concentration. Long and well-balanced on the finish.

******

This Pessac-L�ognan property dates back to the 18th century, with viticulture practised here since the 19th, and from 1990 it has been under the control of highly respected n�gociants, Vignobles Dourthe. Of the 53 hectares of vineyards, 50 are dedicated to red grapes: mostly merlot, on sandy clay, and cabernet sauvignon, which is planted with a little cabernet franc and petit verdot on deep gravel soils. There are also 3.6 hectares of sauvignon blanc and sauvignon gris grown on clay in a cooler section of the vineyard. All grapes are hand picked. The white is both vinified and aged in barrels, whereas the red is fermented in stainless-steel tanks before being aged in oak for 12 to 14 months. The result is an impressively reliable modern claret with velvety concentration and dense, dark fruit flavours.
