Adjacent to Château Lafite Rothschild, this small property has seen a revival in 2009 when new owners, Jacky and Françoise Lorenzetti expended the domaine and modernised the cellar. Helped by famous oenologist Eric Boissenot, they have significantly boosted the quality of their wines, constantly achieving over 90pts from various critics, while prices have stayed within reach so far.
Aged for 14 months in oak barrels (60% new). Complex and elegant aromas of cherry and blackcurrant with hints of sandalwood and tobacco. A refined Bordeaux with good depth and velvety tannins. Great length.
Aromas of blueberry, blackcurrant and stone. Full body, very structured and chewy. Lots of cabernet sauvignon undertones. Very salty. Needs time to soften. Give it two or three years to soften- 92 pts Jamescuckling.com
