Wine Notes: The vineyards cover about 1.2 hectares and sit on gravel-infused soil. The vines are of an average age of 31 years (as of 2017). The grape blend for the Haut-Médoc is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. After a manual harvest, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. At the conclusion of that phase of the vinification, the wine is racked into small barrels to clarify for an additional year before bottling.

Vintage Notes: "Overall the 2014 reds are more than solid, showing pure expressions of fruit and terroir...When it comes to 2014 Bordeaux, it's the right vintage at the right time..." - Wine Spectator 3/31/2017
