Why we're drinking this
The château was bought by the Weber family in the 50s, before winemaking this family specialized in the cultivation of oranges in north Africa.This Bordeaux offering was pleasant surprise! Not an overly complex wine. It is well balance and easy to drink. Mild fruit flavours of sour cherry and raspberry, with stronger fresh herbal flavours of tarragon and rosemary.

Tasting note
Clear medium ruby colour; black cherry and currant with light oak spice aromas; medium body, dry wine, cherry fruit and oak spice flavours to finish.
