Each vintage, the wines get better and better. Xavier Pagès is the son of Marc Pagès of Château La Tour de By. Some 25 years ago, they realised that the soil in this northerly part of the Médoc once produced excellent wines and the land had been abandoned. Now with 40 hectares, and the vines becoming older, 20-25 years on average, 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, this is a property which is starting to produce very good, succulent, earthy claret.
A classic claret with a real punch of red and black berry fruits coming through mid-palate accompanied by cedar and black pepper spice. Well balanced with a good structure.
