La Réserve du Château" is a distinct 18-year aged Agricole with a warm, fruity nose that outshines its lighter, grassy palate. Subtle Agricole flavors with notes of spice and wood, but lacks expected depth and finish for its age.

“This is a very accessible Agricole and I think most Ca actually drink it. The Agricole flavours are very subtle. Lightly fruity with spices and some chocolate and toddee. I noticed that after a few hours the glass had a wonderful nose.”

“Le nez : poire et de la cerise aigre/porto plutôt désagréable Bouche : légère sur la vanille et un profil herbacé Finale : sur le poivre mentholé mais pas suffisamment longue pour un rhum de ce calibre Cette réserve du château 2002-2020 est plutôt décevante. Nez pas très attrayant, bouche trop légère et finale pas suffisamment longue. Au vu de son prix, c’est frustrant.”
