Tasting Notes: Its purple color announces a promising wine, which will not disappoint good connoisseurs. On the nose, aromas of black cherry, blackberry, or blackcurrant with a refreshing finish with its 25% Petit-Verdot.

Notes: Born in 2009 from the desire to offer an innovative and atypical Pauillac! This cuvée brings together the fruit of the work of 3 of our cooperators and represents 0.5 hectares of vines out of the 23 exploited by our winegrowers.

A blend of two plots of old vines where Cabernet Franc and Petit-Verdot thus dominate Cabernet Sauvignon. It only takes place in years when Petit-Verdot is exceptional. The plots of Cabernet-Franc, Petit-Verdot, and Cabernet-Sauvignon are located on the edge of the Estuary and on the Artigues plateau, surrounded by famous Châteaux. A favorable situation where our vines flourish fully on a clay subsoil with gravelly deposits.

Food pairing: As an aperitif, with white meat, or to discover with a chocolate dessert for the most greedy!

The Domain: At the beginning of the 20th century, our vineyard was affected by serious crisis, the small Pauillac owners decided to come together and pool all their means as well as their vineyard plots in order to create great wine, the famous La Rose Pauillac.

In the 1960s, almost all of the small Pauillac farms had joined this beautiful working tool, the reputation of which has crossed borders.

Know-how passed down through the generations, emblematic grape varieties, a prestigious climate and terroir as well as the strength and work of a few enthusiasts, nothing more is needed to produce traditional and authentic Pauillac.

In their cellar, everything is done to sublimate this precious material. A vat room combining authenticity and modernity allows us to vinify in a modern way in order to get only the best.

The typicity, complexity, and longevity of our wines are acquired after long months of aging in French oak barrels, rigorously chosen by us.
