Very enjoyable. Quite powerful initially on the nose, not followed through in taste which was light and subtle berries and perhaps a hint of tobacco. Developed more over time and best served nearer 18 degrees than 16.more reviews

A Saint-Estèphe just as we like it! Seductive aromas, finesse and very tender!
Commissioned by an 18th century Carthusian Monk, this 35-hectare wine was created in the same period by Joseph Laffitte, the king's prosecutor in Bordeaux. It is a wine that offers great delicacy, especially thanks to a fruity and subtle bouquet. It is also delicately framed, but this does not detract from its softness; the palate leaves the taster a pleasant feeling of harmony on the finish. A very successful Saint-Estèphe!

A softer than expected right-bank Bordeaux. Very approachable already, though clearly age-worthy. The wood is still ever-so-slightly disjointed, but not to the point of distracting the drinker from juicy cherry, cassis and blueberry aromas.

Subtle red and blackfruits on the nose and noticeable cabernet sauvignon and distict softer merlot notes on the palate backed up by delicate tannins. Ok now, but won't last long. Great value though as it is St Estèphe
