The chateau's terroir of clay/limestone soils on a outh-facing slope produces wonderfully ripe grapes which result in complex, well-structured wines with fresh, mineral flavours. These characteristics are attributed to the different bedrocks found on the property, from the limestone of the plateau to the iron-rich feldspar sand at the base of the slope. The final blend aims to provide a balance between aroma and tannin to give a wine of unique character.

Wine SpectatorThis nearly gushes with succulent plum, blackberry and black currant preserve flavors, but they stay on the racy and refined side overall, flecked with anise, Lapsang souchong tea and violet notes. A lovely chalky spine controls the finish with a deft hand. Best from 2020 through 2035.
