    Laurence and Pascale produce this exquisite wine from just one hectare of high density, bio-dynamically tended vines worked by their own horse, situated on the sandy, gravelly plateau of Senejac near Le Pian Médoc. The extraction is very delicate by occasional pigeage, and the wine is sensitively aged in just 10% new to 7 year old barrels, the majority of which are 400 and 600 litres, rather than the more traditional 220 size. It would be difficult to find a purer fruited wine (using older barrels and low sulphur really help) which mingle black and red fruits, with a dynamism, freshness and very digestible quality, and exceptionally fine tannins on the finish. And I don’t usually mention labels, but the design is exceptional too, and is just another sign of the care and love behind this wine.  For drinking now to 2022.
