In a nutshell:
An elegant and complex Premier Grand Cru Classé Saint-Émilion.
Since shortly after the turn of the century a change of winemaking personnel has seen this château's star rise among the premier league of Saint-Émilion producers and the light and fresh 2007 vintage is one that further cements this. This is a refined, graceful wine with aromas of cherries and ripe black fruits with a slight savoury hint. While the palate is full of complexity the rich dark fruit flavours are nicely lively and brisk. The finish also shows the fruit character along with the, now mellow, tannic backbone.
When to drink:
From a lighter, classic vintage this wine is right in its drinking window.
