Tasting Notes

    Clive Coates, May 2004,
    Score: -

    51 hl/ha. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot. Very good colour. Lovely ripe nose. Full and structured, but not hard. Rich and firm and profound. Very good acidity. Some tannin but they are perfectly ripe enough. This is just a wine which needs time. Perhaps the best wine that they have ever made here. Very good indeed. From 2012.

Region

St Estèphe

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
