Today, the Château’s wines have returned to their former glory. The owner, Advini, has designed and funded a fully-fledged revival project for the Château and its wine. Sporting strong, Médoc character, Patache d’Aux continues its quest for excellence under the wise guidance and precision expertise of Stéphane Derenoncourt’s teams.
The vines grow on fragmented clay-limestone soil, where their deep roots can feed freely on nutrients and water, even at the height of summer. The wine results from rigorous plot selection, then vinified in uncoated-concrete and stainless-steel vats (all thermo-regulated). To soften tannins and release full aromatic potential, the wine is matured for 12 months in French oak barrels. Colour is deep with purple hues. The nose reveals fruity notes along with frank, complex woodiness. The palate echoes this with supple, blended tannins offering aromatic complexity. The wine’s long, harmonious finish is most appreciable.
