CHATEAU PATACHE D'AUX MEDOC CRU BOURGEOIS
Plush, bright fruit character, with notes of blackcurrant and spiced black plum, and a powerful richness on the palate encased by structured tannins and a long, expressive finish.
The estate has 63 hectares planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, split over three distinct geological sites. Thirty hectares of vines planted on the nearby B?ögadan limestone plateau provide the wine with freshness and tension, whereas the twenty hectares located on the calcareous clay surrounding the plateau tend to ripen later, producing small berries with concentrated tannins which lend both power and structure to the blend. The remaining thirteen hectares lie on the warmest site, planted on Garonne gravel and clay/ sand soils, which produce bright juicy fruit to give the wine a soft and rounded character.
