Tasting Notes: Warm, cooked fruit character with a well sustained flavour enhanced by vanilla oak. Smooth and fine finish.

Producer Details: The Château is impressive, built in the 16th century and attests to the presence of vines already planted around the Castle in 1785. It became the property of the Luquot family in 1907. Since then, the property has been managed directly by the family with the constant concern to express the authentic qualities of the soil. Today the fourth generation continues to invest in the quality of their vineyards and wine, and have devoted themselves to maintaining this work ethic.

In The Vineyard: Sandy alluvium at the convergence of 2 rivers on a subsoil of molasses.

In The Winery: Traditional vinification in concrete tank under temperature control. Maceration for 20 days followed by ageing in French oak barrique, 20% new for 16 months. Fined with egg white.
