Château Picard, (located in the centre of Saint-Estèphe), was classified a cru bourgeois in 1932, and has always been considered one of the best wines in the appellation. This is the most recent vineyard purchased by Mähler-Besse (1997). Once they bought Château Picard, Mähler-Besse renovated the Napoléon III-style cellars and installed efficient winemaking equipment, incorporating gravity flow.
Dark purple colour. Delicately smoky and spicy nose. Elegant and well-balanced flavours. A bourgeois of great class.
