The Story

There is no translation for the word "terroir" and it comes from the inheritance of several generations of winemakers who, over the years, carefully noticed the places where the best grapes grew. For example, the vine of cabernet sauvignon ”the king of grape vines in the Médoc”, requires a long ripening period and prefers well-drained gravel soils. While merlot is more sensitive to drought. It is planted on a cooler soil which can contain more clay (good water retention).

A great wine also comes from vines of a certain age with roots going deep into the ground (minimum of 15-20 years of age). Our parents or grandparents often planted them. This wine is to be appreciated after at least 10 years and up to 30-50 years of ageing. Thus, all the work we do is handmade and this great wine is the result of a long chain.
