Additional Information

The extraction is very delicate by occasional pigeage, and the wine is aged for 16 months in new (10%) to 7yo barrels, the majority of which are 400 and 600ltr (rather than the more traditional 225ltr size). It would be difficult to find a purer fruited wine (using older/bigger barrels and low sulphur really help) which mingle black and red fruits, with a dynamism, freshness and very digestible quality, and fine tannins on the finish.
something
Laurence and Pascale like to experiment and vinify in all kind of vessels, making fresh, nuanced and terroir-driven wines. They also intuitively understand that Bordeaux can produce wines with great finesse and purity of fruit at perfectly adequate, low levels of sulphur (30mg/l total or below). They produce mainly red wines (Vins de France, Haut-Médoc, Moulis and Margaux), but also sparkling and white.
