Sommelier's Notes

The vineyard overlooks the river Gironde and is located on the famous clay and limestone plateau of Portets which is well-drained with lots of gravels from the Garonne River called guntz gravel. This unique terroir allows having high-quality wines that age very well.


The vineyards surrounding the ancient monastery of the eighteenth century reminds the tireless work that the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem were made to develop these good gravel lands where the wine promised a lot.


Produced from 60% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon & 3% Cabernet Franc, this wine displays a deep ruby garnet colour, on the nose there are ripe fruit aromas with hints of smoke, typical of the region. In the mouth wine is medium to full bodied with layers of ripe red and dark fruit flavours and silky tannins.


Food pairings include meats and cheeses, steamboat, cream-based or ragu-based pasta, pigeon.


This wine has won both the Gold Medal at the Gilbert et Gaillard 2016 and the Bronze Medal Concours des Grands Vins de France Mâcon 2016.
