Our oenologists' opinion
Powerful wine with potential
Its garnet color offers a fairly open nose, on red fruits and vanilla. On the palate this wine has a vinous and fruity attack. Finale on notes of plums with brandy and pink berries.
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.

Domain and appellation
Located at Capian, about 30km from Bordeaux, this XVIth century castle was once the hunting lodge of Jean-Louis Nogaret de la Valette, Duke of Epernon. Restored in the seventeenth century, the property was bought by the Suau family in 1637. Over time, the castle has undergone several Suau buyers before being bought by the Boonet de Mazamet family in 1986.
