This little family owned gem is located on the hillsides of St Emilion, boasting Fleur Cardinale as their neighbours.. Only 2000 cases are produced from the 8 hectares of vines, which are planted with 75, 50 and 35 year old vines. The wine is a blend of 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc. Traditionally made to the same meticulous Grand Cru Classe formula for 6 generations. It spends 12 months in French oak, 50% new before being bottled. Dense ruby color with bluish reflect, signs of a beautiful youth. On the nose, fruity notes or even cooked fruits (strawberry, black- berry, morello cherry) mixed with the freshness of liquorice. A bit of swirling aeration allows the appearance of roasted aromas, mocha, ground coffee with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, a tender attack and a fleshy volume restores the fruit flavors. Nice length with a pleasant freshness. The finish is one of spices and vanilla. Lovely. Total Production 2000 cases.
