AOC MARGAUX – GRAND CRU CLASSÉ OF 1855
Located in the heart of the Margaux appellation, the origins of this wine date back to the 15th century, but its name will be given in 1762, by François de Peguilhan, Marquis de Terme. The Seneclauze family owns the property since 1935. Located on a central plateau, its 40 hectares of typical gravel of Margaux are planted with noble grape varieties: cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot.
40 ha of deep gravel typical of Margaux, with pockets of clay deeper down, consisting of three types of terroir:

This vintage offered us a climatic year full of contrasts and unexpected events. But the month of September was the turning point of this vintage. It brought rain and sunshine every day, and boosted the ripening of the grapes, which is essential for quality. The saving rain gave back a Bordeaux classicism to the cabernet sauvignon while the merlot had the maturity of sunny vintages. This difference in ripening style is undoubtedly the carrier of the subtle harmony of the blends of grape varieties to come, and is one of the characteristics of this vintage.
Dark ruby. Complex, dense and expressive bouquet, with notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and a hint of pepper. Delicious and creamy attack accompanied by notes of blackcurrant, cocoa and a hint of clove to add spice. The tannins are dense, powerful and enveloping. This happy balance gives the wine a very silky, delicate side, with great freshness.
