Le Château Gironville 2012 présente un bouquet racé et élégant que l'on retrouve en bouche. Un élevage bien maîtrisé apportant une belle structure et grain de tanin encore un peu ferme confirme le potentiel de garde de cette cuvée. Un beau Haut-Médoc long et séducteur…

Wine rated (guide 2016) : Cité (Vin réussi)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : Wines regularly rewarded (The wines of this producer are regularly rewarded by the guide)

About this wine : Un bouquet intense et boisé (amande grillée, torréfaction), une bouche dans le même ton, encore sous l'emprise de la barrique, soutenue par des tanins au grain serré qui autorisent une bonne garde.

About the vineyard : L'homme d'affaires Vincent Mulliez, disparu en 2010, avait acheté en 2004 dans la partie sud du Médoc les châteaux Bolaire (bordeaux supérieur), Belle-Vue et Gironville (haut-médoc) devenus des valeurs sûres. Ses héritiers ont repris le flambeau.
