Grape VarietyMerlot, Cab Sauv, Cab Franc
StyleFull & Opulent
70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. The vines have an average age of 40 years which gives the wine great depth and complexity. The wine spends 12 - 14 months in oak barrels, 35% of which are new every year with the reamaining 65% being 1 year old.
Intense purplish and ruby-red colour. Typical violet and raspberry overtones, as well as a subtle toastiness are released once the wine is aerated. The palate displays delicious blackberry and raspberry jelly flavours accompanied by full, smooth tannin and a beautiful impression of sweetness. The aftertaste is spicy and elegant with hints of vanilla and liquorice. Perfect balance for a truly elegant wine.
Les carnets de dégustation de Jean-Marc QUARIN – Château Haut-Chaigneau 2005 (15/20) : This is the highest rating I have ever given to a barrel sample of this wine. Deep colour and well-focused, creamy, fruity aromas. One of the most concentrated bouquets in the appellation. Just wonderful on the palate. Rich, elegant, and subtle with great mouth feel and perfectlybalanced tannin. Great consistency. A success not to be missed!
