This 43 hectare château has made major strides since its purchase by Chanel in 1994. It is fair to say that it now punches fully to its 1885 classification and is one of the great Super-Seconds. Only half of the harvest is used in the first wine of this illustrious property. The first vintage produced by new winemaker Nicolas Audebert is a resounding success.
Dark ruby/purple in colour with intense aromas of blackberries and violets. On the palate a hint of vanilla. Lovely fresh acidity, with well integrated tannins.
Great paired with duck breast with bacon, cabbage and balsamic dressing.
Time in oak 18 months.
