Overview: Château Trianon was created at the end of the 17th century by the great influential figures of Libourne and Saint-Emilion, in honour of the Royal Court and of the luxurious dwelling built in the grounds of the Versailles Palaceto, where the King of France liked so much to retire to.
In the 19th century, Trianon was a country retreat belonging to the Andrieu and Lecointre families surrounded by meadows and vines. Until 1952, only 4 hectares (not quite 10 acres) of vines were used to make wine. This was subsequently increased to 6.5 hectares (16 acres). The wine produced from this plot was already described in several wine guides at the time
Tasting Notes: Inky dark core and a purple hue. Fine oak on the nose, some butterscotch, toast and ripe dark berries. Rather ample palate, dense fruit and fine extraction with rounded tannin, generous fruit and a long finish. Nicely polished with good drinkability.
Pairing: Beef stew
