There is only a tiny amount of this excellent St Emilion Grand Cru made each year. The 10 acre vineyard is biodynamically farmed and is situated on a south-south-east-facing, limestone hillside. The plantings are very old vines, 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The winemaking is very modern with an eight to ten day maceration, followed by a long, four to five week fermentation and maceration with micro-oxygenation. The wine is aged for 16-18 months in 100% new oak barrels.The style is powerful, fruit driven and rich with notes of black fruit, smoke and liquorice.
