Château Haut de la Bécade - Pauillac

Located in Pauillac, the Château Haut de La Bécade vineyard covers 7 ha near the Gironde estuary and between the famous estates of Château Lynch Bages, Pichon Longueville Baron and Pichon Longueville Comtesse.

Traditional winemaking procedures, involving a stay of minimum 3 weeks in concrete vats. Ageing in oak barrels for 18 months.
The wines are elegant, supple and fruity. A beautiful robe reminiscent of crushed blackcurrants. It has a complex nose, with red fruits predominating, mainly blackcurrant and raspberry. When opening it is a powerful, rich, heady wine with soft, rounded tannins that will age wonderfully.

The finish is fruity and tannic.
