The opinion of the sommelier

Patache 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 ! 

 

Terroir

The 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.

lecepage Grape variety

On 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.

lemillesime Vintage

An 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 ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Château Patache d’Aux is an old estate which belonged since the Revolution to the Delon family. In 1932, the wines made it to the Cru Bourgeois ranking and 30 years later, the Chateau was taken over by the Lapalu family. When Jean Michel Lapalu retired in 2016, the entire team of Antoine Moueix Properties took over Patache d'Aux and have the ambition of continuing to vinify quality and terroir wines.
