Producer Tasting Notes

An intense, almost glassy darkness immerses the taster in a moment of reflection. The nose, with its deep fruit aromas, imposes its will through force of persuasion. Smooth aromas of peony, vanilla and Autumn spices are balanced by notes of redcurrant. On


Vineyard Notes

Château Barreyres stands proudly in the very heart of the prestigious Haut-Médoc appellation, benefitting from a planting density of 9 600 vines per hectare, aged on average 30 years, and a topography that offers excellent natural drainage. Gravel soils with large, gleaming pebbles reflect the sun’s rays back up onto the grapes, helping them to ripen, to become the essence of the Haut-Médoc in all its elegance.


Winemaking

In the vat-house, the harvest is meticulously sorted. Sleek, modern stainless steel vats bring out the elegance of the terroir. The maceration temperature is reduced to prevent bitterness, before the harvest is transferred to 14 wooden vats.


Ageing

Aging carried out in 1, 600 barrels, supplied by 5 of the region’s finest coopers and bathing in the light of the cellar’s stain glass windows
