62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot
The 15th vintage of this 1 hectare property owned by José Sanfins who, by day, is the director of Château Cantenac Brown. Tasting back through older vintages of this 400 case production on the plateau of Lamarque in Moulis shows that José is a master of selecting his barrels. The balance of the fruit and oak is just sublime and his work in the vineyard puts some of the richest neighbours to shame. The fruit here is just perfect and the 2016 vintage will be one to keep and savour over the next 15 years. Quite simply one of the finest wines of the appellation.
