Appellation

Bordeaux Supérieur AOC

Vintage

2016

Grapes and vinification

65% merlot, 35 % cabernet sauvignon. Ageing: about 15 months in oak barrels (new barrels and ones used for 1 or 2 previous vintages). Winemaking: This prestige cuvée is made from the estate's finest gravelly plots. Representing just 10 to 15% of the château's total production of red wine.

Colour

Intense garnet-red.

Nose

Aromas of very ripe red fruit and spice with toastiness, and smokiness due both to our terroir and long barrel ageing.

Palate

Rich, concentrated, full-bodied, and ripe, but also fresh. Long barrel ageing makes the tannins quite soft and the wine altogether round and pleasing.

Tasting advice

This is the ideal wine for full-flavoured meats such as rib of beef, game, duck breast, and strong cheeses. It can be enjoyed 2-3 years after the vintage, but is best decanted one hour before the meal. This wine can age well for a decade, and should be served at cool room temperature.
