Tasting Notes
88-89/100 - James Suckling
Lots of wood, but plenty of rich fruit underneath. Even slightly jammy, but soft and yummy
87-88/100 - Robert Parker
2010: Attractive aromas of crushed rocks, red and black fruits and a plump, corpulent mouthfeel are found in this easy-going 2010. It should drink well for 7-8 years.
16/20 - Jancis Robinson
Sister property to Belle-Vue. Very dark crimson with real polish. Sweet start with a hint of putty. Then some black fruit and just a slight dullness. I wonder if this sample is 100% Lots of punch and impact. Fades a little on the finish.

My first wine memory
The rigorous beauty of vineyards in the Bordeaux landscape, during spring

One word to describe my wine
Elegant

The history of the Château
For the last 25 years, the estate has shown a real revival. The owners decided to resurrect the vineyards by planting ten new acres. Since, the Cru has been rewarded with many medals. In 2004, Mr. Vincent Mulliez acquired this wine estate and continued this revival with qualitative development and huge investments. The careful attention made ??to the estate paid off. This wine is soft and fragrant and the latest vintages are very tasty.
