INFOS

Presentation

This wine is the jewel in the estate's crown: a selection of the best plots, sorting to keep only the best berries, separate vinification in small stainless steel vats and barrel ageing coupled with aging in amphora and jars.
This is a delicate, elegant, complex wine, perfect for laying down for a decade or so, but also a quicker approach for the more impatient! A rare wine produced in small quantities.

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.
