Description

The original name of this property, parts of which date back to the 12th and 16th centuries, was La Salle d’Argadens. It became Château Argadens in 2002, when it was bought by Maison Sichel. Sichel’s aim in acquiring Argadens was quite simply to see it express the full potential of its wonderful terroir and become one of the benchmark properties in the Bordeaux Supérieur category. To achieve this, the company has invested heavily in terms of finance, time and technology. Sichel’s first vintage at the estate was 2002. Drink from 2019, 5 to 10 years aging potential.

A nice dark garnet red colour with lights showing the richness of this exceptional vintage. The complex and expressive bouquet is a harmonious mixture of dark red fruits aromas and very elegant oaky notes. It is a crisp and sappy wine which offers sweetness and richness on the palate The Cabernets add the necessary freshness to enhance the pleasant tannins of the Merlots. A wine with very good balance which offers a lot of pleasure after several years in the cellars.

Food matches: Perfect pairing for grilled rib eye steak, lamb chops and pork burgers.
