Château du Courlat

From the long driveway of Cyprus trees on your approach, this estate inspires peace and tranquility. Nature is present at every turn, with a large lake at the centre of vines, forest and Château.

Tasting Notes

This is a step up and shows an impressive degree of sophistication. Rich, plummy and ripe, the palate is enhanced by a beautiful tannin structure and excellent balancing acidity. Another excellent vintage.

Food Matches

A perfect partner for roast rack of lamb served pink.
