In The Cellar
The wine is vinified using traditional Bordeaux methods. It develops subtle tannins and fruity flavours. An elegant wine, very typical of the Saint Estèphe appellation

In The Vineyard
The vineyard lies on edge of the communes of Saint Estèphe and Cissac.
"Nicely concentrated blackberry and blackcurrant nose, some florality and a touch of leather, very good depth of fruit and the tannins are absorbed by the richness of the fruit, very good depth, firm flavours and a very good future. 91 points."- Steven Spurrier, decanter.com (commenting on the 2010 vintage)
