Description

Really good Haut-Médoc from a 7ha organically certified property in Cussac-Fort-Médoc where the 30yo vines are planted in sandy gravelly soil. On the nose the wine is most attractive with a slightly floral element, feeling very close to the grape in style. Extraction and oak ageing have been sensitively judged, the wine offers ripe plum and herbal notes, and is composed and well balanced. Exceptional value for money.

Although cabernet and merlot form the majority of the blend, the brothers are big fans of petit verdot and it is due to play a bigger part in the final blend when recent plantings come into production. It is a variety that can produce complex, structured wines when afforded the right level of care and attention and, bearing in mind the recent changes in weather, they think it is now much better suited to the local terroir than merlot which tends to suffer from over-ripeness.
