Classic woodspice and bramble fruit on the nose, the palate is ripe and intense with smooth, spicy oak, cloves and iodine.

Certain of the quality of the soil of a small parcel at the heart of Château Layauga in Gaillan to the north of St Estephe, Henri and his sister Anne-Marie become major shareholders in 2006. They added 7 hectares in nearby Queyrac on the slope of La Hontane in 2007. The slope has good sun & and limestone-clay soil covered with gravel. Viticulture and wine-making is in the style of Haut-Marbuzet: hand-harvesting, low yields, long-maceration with daily remontage, 50% new French oak.

Henri Dubosq of Château Haut-Marbuzet, together with his sister Anne-Marie, came across two small parcels to the north Saint Estèphe. Convinced by the quality of the soil (gravel over limestone clay) and the potential of these two Mèdoc plots - one in the commune of Gaillan, where Château Layauga was founded in 1881; the other 6ha on the east facing slope of La Hontane in Queyrac - they bought them. Viticulture and wine-making techniques are drawn from Haut-Marbuzet but Château Layauga-Dubosq has its own very approachable style.
