The opinion of the sommelierPatache d'Aux is a classic Medoc that goes through the years with a unique and constant style that regularly earns the distinction of Cru Bourgeois. The garnet robe with thick tears offers smoky, tobacco and roasting aromas, then leather notes gives way to plum and blackcurrant. In the mouth, the tannins are melted and the wine is persistent. One of my must-haves !
TerroirThe terroir of Château Patache d'Aux is essentially composed of clay, limestone and gravels. This stony terroir is particularly filtering and can accumulate heat to restore it to the vine and helps the ripening of its berries.
Grape varietyOn the left bank, in Medoc, cabernet sauvignon is the king grape. This noble grape variety provides the structure of the Medoc. To complete this grape, merlot is indispensable and brings flexibility and complexity to the cuvée. In smaller quantities we can find the petit verdot, for its structure, and the cabernet franc for its roundness.
VintageAn atypical year in the Bordeaux region. The high level of precipitation has impacted the different appellations of the region with a high disparity. Fortunately, the beautiful sunny days of September spared a vintage that did not begin well, and allowed the berries to reach a good maturity and to be ready for the harvest !
