Bright damson plum and red currant coulis flavors streak through, showing a fresh, delineated feel as light floral and savory notes chime in. Unencumbered finish. Drink now through 2027. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 9,583 cases made.

Full body, ripe and dense fruit, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. A solid young wine from here.

This 22ha estate is owned by Clement Pichon of Château la Dominique in St-Émilion. A good wine in this vintage, with a high 85% of Merlot, but it gives quite a different profile than you might expect from those numbers over on the right bank. Instead this has a tight frame and balanced bramble rather than summer fruits. It is softly structured but with a punch of tighter tannins on the finish. The rest of the blend is 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc (the first year to feature the new plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon in the wine since restructuring the vineyard four years ago). Harvest took place between 29th September and 19th October, with a good yield of 45hl/ha.

Dark deep crimson. Rather appealing, fresh nose with plenty of ripeness too. Savoury and rather bloody but without the concentration of a great wine. Easy for relatively early drinking. A little drying on the end.

Nez de petits fruits rouges, bois exotique et pointe toastée. Bouche intense, fraiche, longue, petit creux en milieu de bouche. Suave.

Covering an area of ​​25 hectares, it is located on good gravel soil on the surface, the basement consisting of iron grime.
