Tasting Notes

After much research and tasting we’ve found this astonishingly classy Bordeaux from the hills overlooking St Emilion and Pomerol. We love its classical flavour of pencil lead, cedar and black fruits. There is something a bit like a Medoc wine that comes from the Cabernet Franc in the blend with Merlot (like Cheval Blanc) but also undeniably charming and drinkable as St Emilion should be. Being organic makes it even better. It tastes so pure.

More Info

Low-yield vines are hand-harvested at optimum ripeness and spontaneously fermented in concrete tanks before being aged for up to 18 months in a combination of new (30%) and used barriques before being bottled with minimal sulphur. No oenological products (yeasts, enzymes, powdered tannins, tartaric acid, etc), no temperature manipulation, no mechanical interference of any kind.
