    Surrounded by the châteaux of Cheval Blanc, Figeac and La Conseillante in Pomerol, this 6.5 hectare estate on sandy, gravelly soil is a jewel, and well up to most Cru Classé estates in quality. One hectare of the cabernet franc vines are 100 years old which definitely play their part as surely does organic viticulture. Sensitively aged in one third each of new oak, one year old barrel and cuve, yields of 31hh are very low for the appellation. The 2010 is showing perfectly now, it is very harmonious, feeling composed and classy with a good touch of menthol on the nose, with an old vine feel to the structure, spiced plum fruit and supple tannins. For drinking now to 2021.
