    Winemaker's Notes:

    The style of our red wine is classic, with a neat expression of our terroir of Gnzian gravels, which give the wine some unique smoky notes. We look for elegance and structure, freshness and complexity, balance and richness. The majority of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in our vineyard, harvested at full maturity and vinified in the softest way to only extract the silkiest tannins, unveils after a few years all its potential, which we can then enjoy during long years. The other varietals grown on the estate, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, add to the Cabernet Sauvignon their own flavors and take part in the typical harmony of our Cru Classe de Graves.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Wine Advocate

    Medium ruby-red. Black raspberry, smoky dark chocolate and a whiff of game on the nose. Suave, sweet and consistent, in a rather gentle style for this chateau. Plenty of fruit here, lifted by understated minerality. Finishes with ripe, fine tannins and subtle persistence. Not a powerful wine but very successful for the year. Range: 89-91

    International Wine Cellar

    Offers wonderful currant, berryand cedar box aromas. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, classy finish. Balanced and fruity. Racy and gorgeous. Best after 2012. 10,000 cases made

    Wine Spectator

    A smooth, polished wine, with acidity, sweet fruit and a range of dusty tannins, with acidity. This is an accomplished, delicious wine that is developing fast, and seems only for medium-term aging.
