Palate Profile

Built circa 1860, the château features an octagonal tower overlooking the grounds. The vineyards are planted on south-facing slopes with limestone outcrops. The excellent clay-limestone soil gives this Merlot-based Saint-Émilion wine its distinctive taste. Baron Benjamin de Rothschild acquired this superb property in 2003, aiming from the beginning to achieve its fine potential.

The wine displays violet hues which are transparent in the glass. The extremely fresh nose expresses intense black fruit. Hints of cedar mingle with the aroma of Morello cherries. The elegant palate possesses a bold character with sophisticated velvety tannins and notes of liquorice. The finish is long and persistent. While the freshness of this young wine is very pleasant, it also promises an excellent cellaring potential.

"The nose offers a fine freshness as well as concentration. It reveals notes of cassis and crunchy wild blackberry associated with small notes of red berries, cornflower/bulb as well as a hint of spices. The palate is fruity, mineral and offers freshness, juiciness, unctuosity, tension as well as fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, cassis and more slightly cornflower/blueberry associated with subtle hint of liquoricen cocoa and plum skin. Tannins are fine, slightly tight and slightly firm. Good length." 89-90 Points VertdeVin
