Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
The largest estate in Pomerol that has also been in family ownership for over 500 years. 30-year-old vines are planted on the western edge of the Pomerol appellation on limestone and clay soils. All grapes are hand harvested before being aged in oak barriques.
Notes of red fruits, red berries, violets, plums and spice. An easy drinking claret, with ripe fruits and earthy layers of flavour rounded by toasty oak. A rich and opulent finish beguiles and entices.
This Merlot dominated wine that can be enjoyed now or over the next nine years. Drink with cassoulet, spring lamb or rabbit.
