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 2020 vintage follows in the footsteps of the great Bordeaux vintages. After a mild winter and an unsettled spring, the summer with its warm days and cool nights offered the ideal climate for optimal berry development and ripening, resulting in a remarkable harvest. The profile of this vintage is less powerful than 2019, which had riper notes, but has more silkiness, finesse, delicacy and exceptional color, while being superbly structured and balanced, offering it additional years of cellaring... An exceptional vintage.
