Notes
Alcohol: 13%
This château possesses one of the very first vineyards in the Haut-Médoc, developed in 1300 by the Knights Templars. This historical property was bought in 1971 by the Castel family. The château was in ruins at the time, and has been completely refurbished along with the winery buildings.
A juicy wine, with plum, berry and tobacco character. Medium-bodied, with good, ripe tannins and a long, flavorful finish.” Rated 87 Wine Spectator Magazine $16 VdV: "A fine steak or lamb dish would bring out the best in this wine
