Tasting Notes
87-90/100 - Wine Spectator
This shows a good cut already, with a cherry pit noterunning through the plum and the cassis fruit. There is a flash of tobacco on a lively finish.
15/20 - Decanter
Some good fruit, a simple style,
87-89/100 - Wine Advocate
A touch of smoke on the nose,the palate is medium bodied with a sharp entry, balanced and little persistendy towards the finish though

The history of the Château
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.
