    Each grape in this wine is produced on the terroir best suited to its qualities and vigneron Christophe Landry practices a different method of pruning for each grape. His merlot is aged in 400ltr barrels and cabernet sauvignon in 225 ltr barrels, naturally. The percentage of new oak is adjusted according to the strength of the vintage – and from the outstanding 2012 vintage, represented one third with the balance comprising one and two year old barrels. It offers a clear, bright blackcherry colour, a kernel of rich fruit with great depth, and superb texture with good freshness and marked mineral flavours. Very, very long on the finish. For drinking now to 2023.
