This wine is one of the oldest in the very old "terroir" of Graves.
It is located on a high point in the commune of Léognan, composed of gravel land with a slight slope to the northeast and perfectly drained.
The harvests are manual but vinified according to the most modern rules; the grapes undergo an automatically controlled fermentation at 30º in stainless steel vats for 21 days.
It is then aged for one third in new oak barrels for between 18 and 24 months, depending on the quality and evolution of this harvest.
This wine, full of sap, fleshy and with a beautiful bouquet, is light in its youth.
It gains potency as it ages.
Robert Parker 90/100 Points
"This sleeper from this harvest represents a deadly touch for a Grand Cru Red de Bourgogne due to its floral, raspberry and cherry jam notes. Medium-bodied, delicate and pure with abundant fruit, this provocative red transformed by owner Anthony Perrin is alongside the renowned whites of this property. Can be drunk now or kept for 15 years or more."
