The Wine
This wine, classified as a Cru Bourgeois since 1932 and a member of the prestigious Union des Grands crus de Bordeaux, shows some dominant chacteristics.This wine reflects ripeness in the vineyard and enormous concentration. Plum, stone fruit and tobacco on the nose with elegant, understated oak. Opulent, yet well-balanced on the palate with round, powerful tannins and a delious, long after taste.

This is one of the best-known Cru Bourgeois for a number of reasons. One is that the vast estate of 1828 acres produces nearly 40,000 cases of wine. The property was purchased in 1965 by well-known Medoc vineyard owners, Messieurs Cailloux, Lapalu, Pages, and they have built new cellars that hold nearly 1400 aging barrals.
