… revealed a lot in the first few seconds! Being 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, the distinct cassis was the first aroma and flavor to hit the palate, followed by raspberry, plum jam, chocolate and cedar. As the layers slowly unfolded, a dusty earthy quality and other fruity, floral nuances developed. The wine is big and amazingly balanced. The tannins are firm and silky.
Denis Lurton took over the management of the Chateau in 1992 from his father, Lucien. Father and son have put a considerable stamp of competent winemaking in this property. The terrior is of well-drained gravel with some clay. The Gironde Estuary provides moderation to the climate. This chateau produces beautiful and affordable wines.
