|Château Richebon Pauillac
Wine from Château Croizet-Bages, created by the Croizet brothers in the 18th century and ranked fifth Grand Cru Classé in 1855. A time property of a US citizen, the property was bought in 1942 by the Quié family, currently the owner. On its soil of Garonne gravel crossed by rumps of sands halieutiques, flourish Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot which constitute the vines of Château Richebon. Heirs of Paul Quié, Jean-Philippe and his sister Anne-Françoise jealously guard the respect of the ancient methods passed by carrying out a maceration sweet, during 21 days, in order to remove clusters the most elegant fruity worthy of the Pauillac appellation.
A beautiful dark ruby color with purple hues, this wine exudes scents of red berries, blackcurrants and gooseberries, with a hint of fresh vanilla. On the palate, the attack is fleshy and intense, with velvety tannins. Aromas of ripe cherry emerge, mixed with notes of sweet spices and paprika. Light woody notes are revealed, while respecting the fruity character of this wine. The finish is long and tasty
