Château Patache d’Aux
Established in 1660, Château Patache d’Aux is located in the town of Bégadan, in northern Médoc. This 58-hectare estate is one of Bordeaux’s northernmost vineyards. Located just 10km from the Gironde estuary and 30km from the Atlantic Ocean, the vineyard enjoys an oceanic climate. Château Patache d’Aux is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, vinified in temperature-controlled raw concrete vats, then aged in French oak barrels. This wine is dense, structured and dominated by the loamy character of the terroir, with an aromatic nose of fresh fruit lent by a high level of Cabernet Sauvignon. The finish is long, with silky-smooth tannins.
