Located on a north-east slope, the 10.32 hectares grow on Fronsac molasse covering a layer of sand with a clay subsoil. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berries and floral notes. A blend of 90% Merlot & 10% Cab Franc, aged in 45% new oak. On the palate black cherry and strawberry flavors with notes of cacao, licorice and smoke. Fine grainy tannins, medium+ finish, ending with subtle oak character. Tasting Sample.

Fresh and lively exhibiting ripe cherry, plum, truffle, and licorice. Medium bodied with soft tannins. This wine emphasizes freshness rather than concentration. 90/10 Merlot- Cab Franc. 2016 vintage on Oct 30, 2019
