Since acquiring Chateau Argadens, the Sichel family has put in place a vast renovation program, with the aim of making the wine a benchmark within the Bordeaux category. After 12 months in oak barrels, Argadens red is thoroughly modern Bordeaux with lots of concentrated fruit and an attractive, supple balance. Not surprisingly, it gets consistently high marks in tastings and competitions.
Clad in deep ruby red with garnet tints, this wine offers fine, elegant aromas of ripe red fruit with vanilla notes. The palate is ample and round, with a densely tannic structure and a deliciously lingering fruity back-of-palate.
