Additional Information

Average age of vines: Old and younger vines This cuvée has become almost a legend for informed amateurs. In this wine, the main grape varieties used are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Côt and then there are a multitude of grape varieties, some of which are unknown (Gamay, Côt, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Gascon Noir…). Fermented and vinified together. A complex, gourmet, fluid and racy wine that hides a great depth behind its apparent simplicity.
Claude, who is growing older, has started to pass off the winemaking to his son Etienne, who is already showing immense promise. Currently Claude only makes the Racines cuvées and Etienne is in charge of the others. Etienne is another example of the new generation taking over, bringing a new level of precision to winemaking, much as Baptiste Cousin has with some of his father Olivier’s wines. As Claude did before him, Etienne is continuing the tradition of very long elevage in barrel
