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.

 

Notes and Reviews

The Wine Cellar Insider (90)

Crisp lemon-lime with hints of waxy citrus rind, this wine reflects a sweetness in the fruit and packs a zippy acidity in the finish.
