It has a dark purple colour with barely tiled edges. The nose opens slowly with notes of pot pourri, wet earth, spices and graphite. The attack is fine and juicy, with a surprisingly vinous body for the vintage, the wine has a beautiful structure and vinosity. It can be enjoyed young and can be kept for a long time. In its early adult life, it is a great classic that will last! Bettane & Desseauve: 16.5/20; Jancis Robinson: 16.5/20; Falstaff: 91/100; Decanter: 90/100; James Suckling: 90/100; Wine Advocate: 90/100

Superb exposure on the banks of the Gironde, which benefits from the moderating role of this body of water. The vineyard is made up of 2/3 of beautiful, very fat gravelly soils on very rich clay-marl subsoils which require even more extensive drainage, but which give the Cabernet-Sauvignon a frankness and vigour of expression similar to Latour. And 1/3 of heavier, more clayey soils, often favourable to Merlot which triumphs in dry and hot years.


Hand-picked in crates, with sorting on a table before de-stemming. Traditional vinification, with indigenous yeasts, in cement and stainless steel vats, temperature-controlled. Vatting time of 25 to 30 days. Malolactic fermentation in vats, without seeding. Aged in 100% new barrels for 12 months. Total ageing period of 18 months.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Rack of veal • Braised beef chuck • Duck breast with cherries.
