Plump and bold, sweet plum fruit, silky and elegant texture, dark chocolate and mocha, with a lovely freshness and fine tannins.
Peter Kwok, the owner of the estate, is a man enamoured by the right bank being the owner of Château Tour Saint Christophe and Château Haut Brisson too. This very small 3 hectare vineyard (with 1 hectare facing Château Clinet) produces a great wine with 70% merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Château La Patache is barrel fermented, followed by malolactic fermentation. This modern and unusual technique in Bordeaux is used in order to preserve the texture of the merlot, its purity and intense fruit.
