Description

32 Hectare of prime St-Emilion vines broken up as 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. They are making wines are modern influenced. Low cropping, 60% new oak, malo in barrel and long aging to make bold flavoured, rich wines. This estate shares the same ownership as Pavie and Pavie-Decesse.

Bright purple, plums, prunes and big impact. Five spice and hints of rose petals. This wine is dense, full bodied and high impact.

Saint-Emilion – With approximately 5400 hectare planted it is a vast appellation with a few distinct personalities. Like the famous neighbour Pomerol the wines are Merlot dominant and offer the silk, perfume and charm that Merlot can give. The best of the wines will live as long as, if not longer than most Left Bank wines and often cost two or three times more.

Merlot – It gets a tough time most of the places it is grown. But in Pomerol and Saint-Emilion Merlot not only dominates but makes some of the best wines in the world. Perfume, silky and plush. Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon season the wines with structure and acid but in some places, like Petrus they are almost not needed.

1998- A wonderful year on the Right Bank that rivals the Left Banks 2000 vintage for quality and longevity.
