A complex nose, with notes of cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants,
as well as hints of black pepper, spices and oak.


These fruit notes follow through on the palate which is rich and round with silky, ripe tannins. Overall, this is a well-balanced wine with a lovely, long finish.

Growing Conditions

A deep gravel sub-soil which is overlaid with the famous ‘crasse de fer’
(a very firm and stony blend of earth and metal with high content of iron- oxide) of this region. These soils do not produce powerful wines, but ones that are characterised by finesse and silkiness. And their complexity is only enhanced by aging in barrel. Merlot, the classic right-bank grape variety takes precedence in this wine, providing its classic velvety roundness to which we add a hint of Cabernet Sauvignon to bring a balancing acidity
and to add to the aromatic complexity of the wine. It is these characters of elegance, finesse and complexity that we seek to highlight; to bring focus to this great terroir by emphasising its qualities.


12 to 15 months in French oak barrels (25% new oak barrels, 50% one-year barrels, 25% two-year barrels).
