Olivier Bernard and his team have undertaken to make this wine one of the jewels of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, with an outstanding potential.

In order to do so, they use the same methods as the finest great growths: ploughing the soil; sustainable viticulture; plot-by-plot vineyard management; hand picking and careful sorting of grapes; grape transfer by gravity into small 50-80 hectolitre fermentation vats; finely-tuned extraction; malolactic fermentation; ageing in barrel on lees, and so on.

Château Tasting   Very deep, almost black colour. Intense bouquet featuring blackberries, Agen prunes, and blueberries, subtle peppery overtones, and hints of cocoa and almonds. The immediate sensation on the palate is of great breadth and satisfying richness. It has all the magic of great Merlot! This generous, smooth wine gives a harmonious impression of sweetness, backed up by firm but silky tannins. Clarity and precision add to this wine's overall brilliance. The elegant, long aftertaste is reminiscent of the terroir, with fresh hints of graphite and gravel. Its balance, softness, and superb freshness are typical of this vintage.
