Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Well controlled, juicy damson and cassis fruits show good quality. There's a touch of rusticity on the tannins, but lots to enjoy overall. Drinking Window 2022 - 2030
The vineyard surrounding the chateau is situated on one of the best gravelly hilltops to be found between Margaux and St Julien Beychevelle, near the river, which makes it an exceptional quality growing area with deep, well drained soil. All the necessary elements are there: climate tempered by the proximity of the river, a noble "terroir", proven technical input and, most important, the respect and savoir-faire of the men who work under Georges Pauli. Without the necessary intimacy between man and nature, it is impossible to make a great wine.
