Château Tour Prignac is a deep ruby red in colour. The nose is pleasantly spicy, with aromas of ripe red fruits. An initially creamy texture gives way to a solid structure provided by silky tannins. This is an elegant wine, with a delightful finish.
Chateau Barreyres Haut-Medoc is 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 the palette, this Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois is at once powerful, silky and lively. The finish is long and balanced, with pleasant oak offering notes of tobacco and promising remarkable aging potential.
Château Benjamin de Beauregard Pomerol comes a first-class red wine in the glass. Here it presents a wonderfully bright, crimson color. The first nose of Benjamin de Beauregard Pomerol presents notes of black cherries, plums and shadow morals. The fruity aspects of the bouquet are accompanied by notes of cask ageing such as juniper, garrigue and green pepper. On the palate, the texture of this balanced red wine is wonderfully dense. The fruit acid of Benjamin de Beauregard Pomerol is pleasantly rounded and makes this wine wonderfully smooth. In the finish, this red wine from the Bordeaux wine-growing region finally inspires with considerable length. Again, there are hints of plum and black cherry.
Château Simard Saint-Emillion Grand Cru boast a silkier profile than their Left Bank cabernet sauvignon cousins. There’s a gentle floral aspect to the nose, but that’s part of a fairly complex picture with savory, dark fruit and hints of earthiness, green pepper and some cocoa. On the palate it is juicy and lean, the tannins and very plum-skin grip of acidity give it definition, but there’s a hint of cocoa and coffee again, and berry fruit.
