Tasting Note

“Bright ruby red. Impressive Merlot freshness on the nose, characterised by succulent aromas of redcurrants and cassis, underpinned by a delicate touch of smoke.  Full-flavoured on the palate, with impressive density and power. The wine culminates in a generous finish, again enhanced by an appealing subtle smoky underlayer.” Frédéric Bonnaffous, Dourthe Estates Director

James Suckling

Very soft with a berry and chocolate character and hints of spiciness. Delicious now. Medium-bodied with round tannins and a creamy finish. Crisp acidity comes through at the end. Mostly merlot. Second wine of Chateau La Garde. Drink or hold. 91 Points, February 2022

Decanter Magazine

Expressive nose of truffle, smoke, dark chocolate and other savoury elements. This has a juicy charm and is easy to drink with its chalky palate, texture and fine but supportive tannins. 60ha property which features all the soils of Bordeaux. Drinking Window 2022 – 2033. 91 Points, Georgie Hindle, January 2022

Food Pairing

Very good match with game, red and white meat, cheese.
