This chateau should be better recognized than it is: maybe the complex name doesn't help. But this 2003 is a really fine wine, all the elements in the right place. There is solid, chunky black fruit, and a layer of tannin topped by some toastiness from wood. To finish there is acidity and dryness, which promise aging potential. A property to watch. Imported by Casa Bruno.
