His deep color confirms a rich concentration. Thenose expresses fruity aromas (blackcurrants, wood strawberries, redcurrant) and spices. The wine is very charmed and rounded, it expresses itself with ripe and silky tannins with an elegant aftertaste which testifies a well controlled maturation in barrels.

To enjoy with plain grilled red meat, surprising on a red mullet.

The origins of the chateau go back many years. The ancient Capitainerie founded in the 13th century to guard the valley, was partly destroyed during the One Hundred Years War. The next owners eagerly rebuilt it. The remains of the 13th century mingle with elements from the Renaissance period. The facade was rebuilt in the 17th century and the tower in the 19th century, according to Voillet Le Duc. History is just an eternal re-beginning! The vineyard is made up of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec for the red wine; and Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle for the white. The vines are cultivated with the utmost respect for their eco-system. The soil is ploughed so as to favour the natural development of flora and fauna. Adopting a largely hands-off approach to vine-growing, we allow the vines to express themselves so that the grapes can display the whole character of their remarkable terroir.
