Winemaker's Notes:

Concentrated and powerful, this "cuvée" keeps the character of the Patache d'Aux wines. It will take time at least four or five years for its richness and tannic structure to develop and at least, 4 to 5 years before the complexity of a classical Medoc can be totally appreciated
My Notes:

About Château Patache d'Aux:

The first owners of the Château were the descendants of the Counts of Armagnac, the Chevaliers d’Aux. They can be traced back as early as 1632. Seized as a National property during the fourth year of the revolution, it was changed into a stage-coach post. The coaches were better known in the Medoc as « pataches ». Classified as a cru bourgeois in 1932 the Château has belonged to the Lapalu family since 1964. Strong and concentrated The Patache d’Aux wines can age remarkably well and their aromatic freshness and strong structure are still evident up to 10 or 15 years later.
