A superb discovery, and at 1.5 hectares of vineyard this really is a tiny estate (one fifth the size of Petrus even!). Located on clay and limestone soil to the north of the village of St Emilion, the vineyards benefit from an exceptional sunny southern exposition.
Rich and rounded, the Merlot fruit shows soft plummy aromas on the nose with a slight pepper note from the Cabernet Franc. Velvety in the mouth with concentrated flavours of ripe plums, blackcurrants and cherries with a distinctive earthy and mineral character on the palate. The medium body of the wine is supported by soft harmonious tannins and a seductive lingering finish.
