Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

With its fairly sustained garnet color, this wine offers you a pretty frank nose, open on aromas of pepper, vanilla, finely roasted, soft caramel. On the palate it presents a good balance, frank, medium body, fairly round and supple, the roasting notes blend, true style of second wine, easy, melted and pleasant.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

In 1787, Mr Fournier de la Chapelle, a high and powerful lord and adviser to the King, had the present Château, called "L'HOSPITAL", built in Portets, 24 km south of Bordeaux, in honour of his wife Anne-Catherine de l'Hospital. The neo-classical style building has been classified as a historical monument since August 1973. Alphonse de Lamartine stayed here several times and found inspiration for some of his famous works.
