This is real wine to give pleasure with a good lively mouth-feel, a bold and well balanced palate that opens generously on pouring.
Made from 85% Merlot and 10 % Cabernet Franc which were grown in the chalky clay soils of Grezillac close to Libourne. The grapes after harvesting were given a cold soak to extract the fine aromas before being vinified parcel by parcel in small stainless steel vats. Ageing was in 2nd year barrels for 6 months.
