Something special! From an estate purchased by the Amoreau family of legendary Château du Puy (now just called Le Puy), which has become one of just a few cult wines in Bordeaux. As with ‘Le Puy’, this estate is organic and biodynamic, uses only natural yeasts and no added sulphur. Ageing is in very old oak barrels, and the wine is both unfined and unfiltered.

Taste

Impressive complexity, Savoury black fruits with oak notes

Aroma

Earthy mulberry and cassis, Savoury

Situated close to the villages of Saint Emilion and Pomerol on clay soil, and fossil rich limestone. They bottle the wine under ‘Vin de France’ label as it allows them to best express their exceptional soil and terroir, the way they want to. Made from 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is according to Decanter’s July 2020 magazine one of 10 Bordeaux producers to watch, with wine writer Jane Anson awarding an impressive 94 points to the 2016. It pulses with dark fruit, lashings of cassis and blackberry, the rich aromas of sweet earth and autumnal berries are mesmerising. A wine of great elegance and purity, to complement a special meal.
