The Castéja family has poured huge investment into this château over recent years, and quality has climbed impressively. With guidance, for many years, from Professor Denis Dubourdieu of Bordeaux University (consultant here from 2001 until his untimely death in 2015) a policy of gently simmering the wine beneath its grape-skin cap, after the tumultuous fermentation, was introduced – to help build the wine’s body. The 2018 is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, ageing 60% in new barrels. Colour is impressively deep, aromas are ripe, complex and cedary. Palate shows dense, luscious fruit, with beautiful freshness, fine tannins, elegant length and superb potential (for drinking 2025-2040+).
