A traditional style of Claret that has elegance and savoury fruit in abundance. This wine exhibits a dark ruby colour in the first years.
Decant the wine before drinking and discover it's large spectrum of aromas: notes of blackcurrant and jammy fruits associated with soft spices and subtle vanilla.
It has a well-balanced palate with soft tannins and a very delicate finish.
Perfect to drink now, but this has excellent age worthiness. Cellaring a few years will develop a complex mix of leather, undergrowth and smoky notes.
In 1964, Gabriel Fabre purchased the property and took on the task of replanting the entire vineyard site and rebuilding the winery. Vincent Fabre, his son, has since taken over the management of the estate.
The 33 hectare vineyard is located partly on the commune of Cissac adjacent to Pauillac and partly on the plateau of Vertheuil contiguous with Saint-Estèphe. The gravelly subsoil is covered with a clayey limestone topsoil in some areas and a clayey gravel topsoil in other areas.
