Overlooking both Cheval Blanc and Pétrus, this is a beautifully located, family owned château that produces outstanding, affordable claret. It is one of the oldest properties in Montagne which in itself is the smallest appellation in the Bordeaux region with only 18 growers. Dating back to the 16th Century the property has 23ha of vines that surround the Château. Jacques Rambaud took over from his father in 2005.
This château never fails to please. Its positioning is perfect, overlooking both Cheval Blanc and Petrus, but it is very much more affordable! A ripe, raisined bouquet is exceptionally alluring, whilst the palate is rich and succulent and brimming with cassis fruit. The finish is long and soothing.
Great with rib eye steak and onion rings, or a rich meaty or veg casserole, even with a simple ( yet high quality ) Burger
A blend of 20% Cabernet Franc, 80% Merlot, all handpicked from the estates wonderfully situated and beautifully tended vines. 40% of the wine is aged in 1-4 year old oak, all French and only using a light toast.
