The Story

The vineyard is planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc on complex clay and limestone soils and sub-soils. Francois Mitjavile, who took the reigns in 1978 is a pensive character with an unquestionable talent for producing great, thought provoking wines. He is quite happy to share many of his techniques. He unashamedly harvests late and there is often a hint of degradation to the fruit. His wines possess a real character and soul; they are intellectual wines that never fail to satisfy.

Written Notes

Tasted elleven times - last time in May 2015. Consistent notes. Black red, strong aroma of dark cherries and blueberries, stunningly luscious, silky tannins, refined and sophisticated everywhere in this wine. Enormously rich and multidimensional. Phenomenal on the nose and palate! The depth, richness and length of this wine is simply mind-boggling! A dream wine for a winelover! A legend already and one the best vintages ever produced here. This wine has already been eternal from its birth.

"Tasting this wine in May 2015 was 11th time tasting it, so I've followed this wine from its very birth and it's been eternal from the very beginning.

Black red, strong aroma of dark cherries and blueberries, stunningly luscious, silky tannins, refined and sophisticated everywhere in this wine. Enormously rich and multidimensional. Phenomenal on the nose and palate! The depth, richness and length of this wine is simply mind-boggling! A dream wine for a wine lover! A legend already and one the best vintages ever produced here. Simply unforgetable. "
