In 2011 Peter Kwok acquired the Château La Patache in partnership with his son Howard.
The property has 3.18 hectares spread over nine plots from Clinet to Latour through Montviel. The plots are located on soils of a large variety and complexity - soil composed of fine gravels with irondirt and clay in the subsoil.
La Badine de la Patache is the result of a selection of different plots in partnership with winemakers having the same qualitative philosophy.
Cherry colour, La Badine reveals pronounced notes of red berries and a few notes of undergrowth. The light toasty oak aromas are well integrated giving a little spicy touch. Full on the palate, showing a beautiful structure, its silky tannins permit immediate drinking when the wine is fairly young as well as after a few years in the cellar. (To be drunk in 2 to 8 years).
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
Parcel management of the soil and vineyard. Traditional farming, single Guyot pruning, natural grass between the rows, work the soil under the vine, de-budding, subtle leaf removal and green harvest as necessary to respect the environmental balance.
20% French oak barrels for 12 months.
It will perfectly complement meat in a flavoursome sauce or game.
