The opinion of our oenologists
Dark red colour. Clean. Medium intensity. Very ripe fruits, concentrated without being cooked. Soft attack, developing a refined mouthfeel. The wine tightens in the middle of the mouth and evolves smoothly, rather fleshy, with a subtle aromatic nuance and quality tannins without harshness. Good length. A wine that can be drunk easily in its youth.
The Médoc appellation
The Médoc appellation concerns the northern part of the Médoc vineyards and covers an area of 4,900 hectares. It concentrates the majority of the “crus bourgeois” and “crus artisans”. The soils of the Médoc are mostly brown clay-limestone and clay-sand with some limestone outcrops on certain terroirs. Merlot plays an important part in the blend of red wines, complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Médoc wines are fine and complex, with notes of red and black fruits. They age well over time due to their barrel ageing and can be kept for 3 to 10 years.
