Patache recalls the stagecoach that ran the length of the Médoc in times past. It’s a freshly smooth wine, showing the quality of 2005 in a polished, fruity way, the black plum fruits held together by gentle tannins.
Good smoky flavors complement this attractively-made wine. The fruits are lifted, forward and easy, but there is a sense of tannin. Spice from the American oak used in aging adds a piquancy.
A fresh, fruity branded Bordeaux from the producers of Château Patache d’Aux. It has friendly, approachable fruit, with light wood, good ripe plums and berries and a firm, but juicy finish.
