Château Argenteyre (l')
AOC Médoc Red
An almost black ruby red with purple tints denoting the youthfulness of this wine. Beautifully expressive nose with notes of plum and blackberry and a touch of toast and vanilla. A silky texture envelops the firm structure typical of the appellation and an exceptional vintage. Focused, lingering finish with roasted notes, the sign of careful ageing. No doubt about it, this is another step up the quality scale for a wine which has never ceased to distinguish itself for quite a number of vintages. Wait another few years before opening.
A distinguished Médoc, drinking well from 2017 but will age nicely for a few years yet.

The sustained, deep ruby colour of this wine leaves no doubt as to its richness and intensity. The bouquet displays superb complexity with aromas of blackberry and black cherry and a late impression of vanilla, denoting ageing in quality oak. The supple, rounded palate reveals strong tannins wrapped in silky extract and a long, fruity finish with a mingling of roasted, oaky notes. A typical, harmonious Médoc.

Beautiful, profound ruby colour with a correspondingly harmonious bouquet of toasty, fruity and spicy notes and a hint of truffle. The charmer of a palate has beautifully rounded structure and balanced extract, resulting in a subtly elegant whole. A wine elaborated with care on this unique terroir of the Médoc.
