Very attractive intense crimson colour, deep purple at the rim. The bouquet shows ripe red fruit (cherry, blackcurrant, plum) with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and liquorice. A soft palate which is full bodied and delicious with concentrated tannins and a persistent, long fruity finish.

This property was acquired by Baron Edmond de Rothschild who already owned the neighbouring estates: Châteaux Clarke and Malmaison. It marked the beginning of a new era, starting with the complete restructuration of the vineyard and restoration of the buildings. Previously named Château Peyre-Lebade due to its geographical location – and where the first traces of viticulture date back to the 12th century and the Cistercian monks of the Vertheuil monastry – this estate has been renamed Château Odilon, in honor of the painter Odilon Redon who spent his childhood and most of his active life on the property. Many of his most famous paintings were inspired by the bucolic landscapes of the Médoc, dotted with moors and marshlands.
