Grapes: 83% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc

Denomination: Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Production area: The vineyard embraces Saint-Emilion and is located on a terroir characterized by a thin layer of clay above the "Astéries" limestone (rocky limestone). This terroir gives the wine a high minerality in its youth, especially thanks to the presence of ferrous residues (crasse de fer).

Viticulture: The vines are pruned on the double guyot system. The secondary shoots are removed and three green harvesting series completed in order to obtain no more than four bunches of grapes per vine. The grapes are harvested by hand in small trays before being transferred to the cellar.

Vinification: The grapes are selected, first by bunch and then, after destemming, grapes for grapes. After an extreme cold maceration, the wine is fermented in new French oak barrels and is aged in an air-conditioned cellar at 18 ° C.

Tasting: On the palate it offers notes of graphite, roasted coffee, melted chocolate, cassis cream and kirsch. It is a dense and rich wine that can be drunk at the beginning of life or stored for two decades.
