Currently owned by the Bouygues family, the Château was completely restored and modernized in the early 2020s.
This cuvée comes from successive and rigorous selections carried out at each stage of production, in the vineyard as in the cellar, this great Cabernet Sauvignon wine is typical of the Saint-Estèphe appellation: structured, tannic, but with all the finesse and l elegance of a Grand Cru Classé.
As it ages, it develops a delicate and complex bouquet. Its aging capacity is exceptional.
