Château D'Agassac is spread over 106 acres between 2 gravelly hilltops and an area of sandy gravel. A blend of 55% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc. Ageing in 50% in new barrels, 43% in stainless steel tanks and 7% in amphora resulting in a wine with great focus on fruit purity and freshness. The fruit is bright and vibrant and the wine is approachable in its youth. It displays note of blackcurrant, cherries and raspberry. The oak is well intergrated, imparting delicious, subtle flavours. The palate is concentrated with a wonderfully chewy, generous texture.

16.5 / 20

Alistair Cooper MW

Earthy nose with dark fruits dominating. Nice structured fine tannins support the moderate acidity and cassis mid palate, well-judged oak and a spiced peppercorn note on the herbal infused finish. Attractive and should drink well from 2026.

92 / 100

James Suckling

Lots of blueberry and crushed-stone character. Medium bodied, juicy and flavorful. Lots of blackberry here.

Sweet but muscular on the palate and the nose, this has concentration and a clear tannic structure. Robust and firm with great intensity of bright fruit and firm core, dense but lively too. Well worked. Just a touch of cedar and toast on the final fling.
