  • Farming: Organic (certified)
  • Variety: Merlot 60%, Cabernet Franc 40%
  • Terroir: 6 hectares of vine-yards, divided between two sites: one outside of St.-Émilion in Juillac/Sainte Radegonde andthe other in Lugon near Fronsac. 45+ year old vines planted in a mixture of clay, gravel, and limestone.
  • Vinification: Hand harvested.Following total destemming and a weeklong cold maceration, wine ferments spontaneously in concrete and stainless-steel tanks for 3-4 weeks. ML is spontaneous in concrete and stainless.
  • Aging:  12-18 months in 25-30% new French oak. Unfined, unfiltered. Extremely limited sulfuring, applied only at bottling (c. 30 mg/l total, c. 25 mg/l free).
  • Tasting Notes: A firm mineral backbone and much greater length on the palate. Fresh, honest, and complex, it ris reminis-cent of a serious Chinon, with warm earthy fruit on the nose, but a great deal of fresh fruit on the palate.
