This Château is the finest producer in Listrac, one of the six appellations of the Haut-Médoc. Purchased in 2006 by two brothers, Laurent and Renaud Mommeja, members of the Hermès luxury-goods family, the 47 hectares of vines are planted on clay and limestone, as well as a gravel plot nearby hamlet in Fourcas.
Aged in 28% new oak, there is a lovely whiff of blackcurrants on the bouquet – very expressive. The palate is open, lush and rounded, with layers of chocolate, coffee bean, cherry and roasted plum. Good ripe structure, with supple tannins and a finely balanced fresh finish. Very moreish.
