Dating back to the 16th century, This Cru Bourgeois has the reputation of producing excellent wine at relatively modest prices. Thanks to the limestone-clay subsoils, the power of the wine made here is balanced with a wonderful sensation of freshness.
Aromas of red and black berry fruit with hints of truffle, spice and cedar. Full bodied on the palate with concentrated fruits and firm tannins well-balanced with a tight acidity and mineral finish.
Under the ownership of Jacky Lorenzetti, president of one of France's top rugby clubs, this estate is now performing impressively. The wine is finely structured with dark tannins and tight acidity and a hint of minerality. It is Merlot dominated, although it is the 40% Cabernet Sauvignon that brings out the black-currant fruitiness. Drink from 2022.- 93 pts Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
