A blend of 56.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Carmenere.
Very delicate, subtle fruit-driven nose with attractive floral notes- smooth and full flavoured with a powerful finish- the finish is long
Our best selling claret. Approachable blackcurrant fruit, a fine balance of tannin. Acidity and fruit in a great vintage.
The Chateau is located partly in the commune of CISSAC adjacent to Pauillac and partly on the plateau of VERTHEUIL contiguous with Saint-Estèphe.
The plantings are 58% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 5% petit verdot and 2% cabernet franc and these make up the wines to a greater or lesser extent according to the harvest.
A beautiful wine, once again, from this property that has been on a superb qualitative roll for several decades. Dense ruby/purple with notes of graphite, background oak, youthful crème de cassis and blackberry fruit as well as a floral underpinning, it is medium to full-bodied, textured, rich and impressive. Still in a somewhat adolescent stage, it should hit full maturity in another 2-3 years and last at least two decades. Drink 2017-2037.

58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. The 2005 here was brilliant and the Chateau believe that the 2009 is even better. Plush red cherry, redcurrant, soy and forest floor aromas.On the palate there is ample freshness and focus. Medium bodied with lovely chalky tanins. Great finish and length- a stunner
Black fruits and toast aromas. Big and tannic, medium purple in colour with an expressive, youthful nose of liquorice, roasted coffee, ripe plums and slight chocolate . A wine with elegant and smooth drive. Well-layered and complex with flavours being very well integrated.

Coming from the same stable as Leoville las Cases in St Julien, the wine is firmly structured with firm tannins and dark fruit. Rich plum flavours are counterbalanced by solid tanins.
This superb Pinotage consists of captivating strawberry flavours complemented by raspberry undertones.

Delicate aromas of wood and vanilla emphasize the structured and elegant taste with intense notes of wild berries, ripe juicy sour cherries and hints of sweet spices that leave the palate. The wine is well structured with a strong and mellow texture.

Lots of red fruit, violets and chocolate aromas followed by smooth tannins, hints of vanilla from the oak and lots of rich, complex and spiced fruit with a very long finish. Wonderful !
