Grown on a chalky soil at a 500m altitude this red wine is well structured with a complex nose of ripe red berries and stewed fruits with spicy and toasted aromas . An full flavour with great fruit and lovely aromatic complexity.
Medium ruby-brick color with aromas of vanilla, herbs and spices, very mature fruit such as raisins, as well as leather and tobacco. These all come together harmoniously to give a velvet silkiness and finesse on the palate.
A pristine dark ruby red, with the classic Reserva characters. The nose and the palate are dominated by red fruits with a hint of spice and vanilla. Round elegant on the palate with a long satisfying finish.
Ablend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Parker rated 95-
Jancis Robinson's revue
Dark crimson. Savory nose and beautifully balanced with nothing out of line. Restrained and not quite unfurled but utterly convincing. Everything is tucked in there. Classic 2005 – very solid and chewy – but with great fruit buried there too. Jancis Robinson
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.
||Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015

Aromas of Morello cherries, ripe berry fruit on the palate with a white pepper spiciness.
