Plump with gravelly hints. Light and fresh on the palate.
Tasting Notes: From a ripe vintage, this red Graves shows the plumpness of the year and the pleasant gravelly touch that Graves delivers from its stony geology. Bright and lively, with fresh forest fruit aromas. Complex layers of red berry fruits, fresh acidity, delivering good length in the finish. The wine spends 6 months in oak, one of which is new oak.
One of the oldest wine producing Chateaus in the Gracvves area. Built in the 17th century for Monsieur De La Reynie, a lieutenant of King Louis XIV
