Tasting Notes: A garnet red color. On the nose, black fruits dominate, mixed with Provençal herbs and floral notes (dried roses), sign of the greatest terroirs of Graves. The aromatic intensity reveals subtle notes of roasting and leather, a sign of well-controlled aging in barrels. In the mouth, the attack is delicately wadded, then the wine quickly asserts itself as dense and racy with a woody that does not exceed. We find a dominant fruitiness that lies on a final licorice. The tannins, both fine and structured, guarantee a continuously balanced weft. This cuvée will seduce by its intense floral aromatic accompanied by a dense and elegant texture.

The Domain: Created from scratch, Château Haut Selve was born at the dawn of the XXI century.

With a deep gravel soil, a warm microclimate, and a subsoil rich in groundwater, this exceptional terroir offers unique conditions for the development of the roots and for an optimal ripening of the grapes.
