Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
75cl * 14% ABV * Médoc, Bordeaux, France
The 27 hectare vineyard of Château Argenteyre is the hidden gem of its appellation. Painstaking tending of the vines and careful vinification by its passionate viticulturalist-owners, Philippe and Gilles Reich, allow this outstanding terroir to fully express itself. The vines are tended in a traditional way and harvesting is done by hand.
The 2018 vintage has a beautiful, deep ruby colour with toasty, fruity and spicy notes and a hint of truffle. Beautifully rounded with fine structure and balance, the palate is juicy and fresh with aromas of creamy cherry, raspberry and blackberry as well as hints of peony, chocolate and toastiness from 12 months oak aging. This is drinking well from 2023 but will only improve with a few more years of age.
