This Superb Bordeaux Superieur of 12 ha is located between Château Siran, Château Dauzac (5th Growth) and the River Gironde. The family de Cazenove decided to replant this old estate that was frozen in 1956. They selected the best parcels of Alluvium soil where they planted Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc on rootstocks adapted to the soil. A deep understanding of local traditions, dedicated work and high quality requirements allowed reaching maturity and an excellent plant level. This vintage is characterized by fragrances of ripe raspberries and a gorgeously dense structure, ample and long in mouth
