The Story

This great château is located on the plateau of Pomerol next to its famous neighbours Château LAFLEUR and Château PETRUS. It was acquired by Ets. Jean- Pierre MOUEIX in 1953.
Today the estate is composed 90% of Merlot with an average vine age of 30 years and 10% of Cabernet Franc with an average vine age of 50 years.  Christian Moueix' obsessive work in the vineyard focuses on sap flow and the treatment of each vine individually.  In the cellar, vinifications are extremely precise but quite traditional: vinification in cement and stainless steel, aging in oak barriques for 18-22 months (usually ~50% new oak).

Written Notes

Rich, intensive fruit, in a mix of both dark and red, and Elegant with very smooth and silky tannin like a Hermes scarf slipping through your hand. Really sweet and feminine, delicate and complex. Very long finish of sweet red plum and cherry. This is my favourite from JP Moueix. 95-96
  • 96p
Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. Initially quite closed, opens up well displaying pure fruit aroma, dark berries, hints of toasted oak and mild spices in the background. On the palate well structured with velvety tannins, sweet fruit and a spicy aftertaste. A great example for elegance and persistence.
  • 96p
Medium deep colour. Redcurrant plum floral star anise aromas. Supple sweet fruited wine with dense red currant plummy fruit, fresh sinuous fine tannins, savoury oak notes. Lovely persistence. Aniseed kick at the finish. Still elemental but will develop very well. 96 points
