    This vineyard has a superb terroir – a small steep-sided knoll overlooking the Dordogne – with a rich and varied mosaic of all the underlying geology (Oligocene clays and sands with limestone on the hilltop) of the appellation. Aged in 40% new oak (the balance up to two years old), La Truffière is the château’s top cuvée. The 2011 is drinking perfectly now, showing finesse and truffley notes on the nose, balanced by a nice minerality and freshness on the palate. For drinking now to 2020.
