Fresh, powerful and mature Bordeaux blend
Impressively deep garnet red in colour. A perfumed, complex nose of red fruits with flavours of wild strawberry and raspberry alongside crushed violets. A more dark fruit profile on the palate with blackberry, plum and blueberry wrapped around nuances of wet earth , liquorice and leather. Full-bodied with glossy tannins, lush mouthfeel and a lengthy finish.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
"An interesting combination of lush Merlot fruit with classic structure and grippy tannins that suit a bloody steak." Tom Doorley, The Irish Mail on Sunday, 04/04/21
"A youthful, intensely fruity merlot/cabernet blend with a good degree of tannin to match grilled steak." 88/100 - Martin Moran, The Sunday Times, 8th March 2021
With a single plot spread over 37ha sitting half-way between Bordeaux and St-Émilion, this is a vineyard truly in the heart of things. The plot itself is made up of fine gravel and clay-limestone, the quintessential terroir that defines exceptional Bordeaux. In a region where vintage variation plays a huge part, the Château’s commitment to biodynamics is impressive in itself. Add in to all this vines with an average age of 45 years and you’ve a template for quality Bordeaux that doesn’t break the bank.
