Rich, bold and robust - packed with fruit.
2015 has intense cassis fruit with an underlay of liquorice and excellent supporting tannins. A hint of cedar wood and pencil lead adds to the character of this wine which is punching way above its weight in recent years.
The grapes are destemmed and then slightly crushed, before fermentation in thermo-regulated stainless steel fermentation vats. The wine is aged for 12 months in 25% new oak barrels.
Situated 500 metres from St Julien, adjacent to Château Gruaud Larose and Château Lascombes, this property is blessed with some very fine vineyards producing fruit worthy of Classes Growth status delivering outstanding value for money.
