Grape(s): Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Localization: Graves, Bordeaux, France
Tasting Notes: The wine immediately imposes itself with its intense and complex aromas of red fruits, tobacco, cedar, and camphor. An attack full of freshness opens on a powerful, ample, rich, and long mouth, which perfectly integrates the wood contribution. Harmony at all levels.
The Domain: The new master of the place is a passionate winegrower committed to the Graves terroir for more than 30 years.Like Montesquieu, I was born on this magnificent terroir of Graves, a few kilometers from the Château de La Brède, and, like him, I have remained deeply rooted there. Son of a winegrower, the love for this profession appeared very early. After the years spent alongside my father and studying enology at the Tour Blanche, I settled alone on this terroir that is dear to me: the Graves.
It's been a little over 30 years now. Years punctuated by the seasons and the cycles of the vine, to move forward with strength, tenacity and open-mindedness. Because the world of wines is changing rapidly and calls for constant questioning. At 53, I am still learning every day and I experience each vintage as a real new start without ever taking anything for granted.
