This chateau has recently been purchased by an insurance company. Money has been no object in restructuring the property, and the results for the past 4 or 5 vintages have been impressive. It's a ripe wine, almost opulent, with ripe cherry and blueberry flavors, lending sweetness and tannins. Flattering now, it will mature quickly. Imported by PJ Wines.
