Léon Nony bought the vineyard in 1939, after his death in 1959, his son, Michel, then his grandson, Jean-Marc, continued his work. A blend of Merlot (93%), Cab Franc (4%) and Cab Sauv (3%), aged in French oak (25% new). Dark red with purple tones and aromas of dark berry fruits and cedar notes. On the palate blackberry flavor with toasty oak, spice and cacao. Attractive tannins, nice balance, lingering, ending with an oaky earthy character.

Very nice. A Bourdeaux that is mostly Merlot. Red fruit aromas. Flavors of red cherry with a slight oak taste followed by spice.

The 2015 is a pleasure. Smooth dark fruits, graphite and earth with a long smooth finish that bring the joy of Bordeaux to your table at the $20-$30 range. Solid value

93% Merlot, 4% Cab Franc, 3% Cab Sauvignon. Deep ruby color. Funky- aromas of toasty oak, dark fruit, cocoa and moss. Nice red fruit on the palate and dry finish.

Super Frenchy. Lots of merlot, need to let it settle and open up.

Lovely midweek go to bottle. Medium body, dry, soft tannins and a clean finish. This bottle just gets better the longer you drink it.
