INFOS

Presentation

Vinified for 4 generations, from great-grandfather to great-grandson, this wine is the very essence of our estate. Luscious, fruity and powerful, it can be adapted to any occasion. A wine for every table...

The vintage

The 2019 vintage follows in the footsteps of recent great Bordeaux vintages. The winter was surprisingly mild, followed by a rather cool spring. Summer was hot, but the rain came at just the right time on several occasions: in July and August, then a few showers in early September. These rains were a lifesaver, keeping the grapes fresh and energized before harvest.

In the vineyard
