Winemaker's Notes

The vineyards for this wine are located on the west slope of Pomerol at Cloquet on the edge of the RN 89. The grapes are hand-picked, carefully sorted and de-stalked. Fermentation takes place in open wooden vats. Aging in 100% new French oak barrels.

Critical Acclaim

"A very good effort from this small Pomerol estate, the 2004 exhibits a ripe mulberry and black cherry-scented bouquet revealing hints of exotic spices and sweet oak in the background. With a dark plum/ruby color, medium body, and low acidity, it is a nicely textured, seductive offering to drink during its first 10-12 years of life. 87-89 points. "
89 Points

"Well crafted, with attractive berry and mineral character on a medium body. Nicely placed tannins and a lightly firm finish. Stylish. Not imported into the U.S. Best after 2008. 750 cases made. "
88 Points

Learn About Merlot

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
