Jeff Leve

This structured wine is firm, with dark tannins that promise aging. The fruit hints at delicious black currant flavors and balanced acidity. It will be a stylish wine, but wait to drink until 2026.

Des effluves délicatement musqués et une pointe de menthol se mêlent aux baies noires et rouges et confèrent une certaine profondeur aromatique au cru. Le palais est souple et très agréable.

Cedar and tobacco lead off the perfume before you get to the spicy, cranberry, red currants and herbs. Bright, crisp, chewy, medium-bodied, classic, and crunchy, give this at least 5 or more years in the cellar before pulling a cork. The wine blends 45% Cabernet sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Moulis

The Moulis appellation is located to the west of most of the Médoc's municipal appellations: its vineyard starts 3 km from the Gironde and extends to the west.This continental situation testifies to the effective precedence of the Moulis vineyard. In fact, in the 14th and 15th centuries, the vines were planted in the interior regions rather than on the edge of the estuary.
The winegrowers of the time preferred to avoid the dangers of the humidity of the river and the fogs, which favored decay and decimated the vineyards.Even today, the Moulis vineyard enjoys this advantageous situation, allowing it to wait for the optimal maturity of the grapes.
