A "Killer" wine.
This Medoc is made by a family member of
Chateau L'Argenteyre who wanted to create her personal
version of what she envisioned as a great Medoc - above and
beyond "Cru Bourgeois" classification of their L'Argenteyre.
The Blend is: 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec
& Petit Verdot, an unusual Bordeaux "assemblage".
Unfortunately only about 20,000 bottles were made, and we were
allotted a very small quantity. This wine sells out quickly.
The 2016 is Cab driven even though it is higher in Merlot
which softens the tannins. The Malbec & Petit Verdot add
subtle character. The 2016 vintage is considered one of the best of the century.
