Tasting Notes
4 stars - Decanter
A beauty contest winner! Discreet, classy aroma of crunchy fruit and earth. Attack is substantially supple with well-defined pure fruit notes of plum and cherry and a svelte texture. Classy and elegant – an excellent drink.
Lauréat - Coupe des Crus Bourgeois
Finalist in 2008 & 2009. Well rippen red berries, cherry, smoky hints, chocolate, deep, tendre flesh, silky tannins, tasty and lasting.
89-90 / 100 - Wine Spectator
Features a stony, taut feel, with a core of dark plum and black licorice. A tarry edge adds length to the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2017.

The history of the Château

Located in the heart of the Haut Médoc appellation, Régis Bernaleau has managed to bring out the depth of this outstanding vineyard.
