Degustation notes

Intense purple, almost black colour, a noble nose combining delicate roasted notes with aromas of ripe black berries, almost stewed, marked by the liveliness of its youth and softness on the palate, tannic youth and expressive fruit, very seductive, lovely roasted aromas, a modern wine that would benefit from a bit of ageing.

Special notes

Owner: AXA Millésimes. In 1987, the Chateau changed hands, from the Bouteiller family, owners for 54 years, to AXA Millésimes. A restructuring of the cellar and the architecture took place. Fermented for 15 months in 60% new barrels. The vineyard area is 31 hectares. The average age of the vines is 35 years. First wine - Château Pichon-Longueville-Baron AC and the 2nd Cru cl. Pauillac.
