The Sommelier’s Advice:
Exceptional setting for this little property of 5 acres of vine, located in the neighbourhood of such great Châteaux like Pavie, La Mondotte, .. still resisting to pressure of the greatest !
Nice ruby red coloured dress, clean and shiny look. Nice traditional style nose quite open. Delicate and slightly woody mouth, very typical of the Saint-Emilion spirit. Good length.
Followed since 1955 by Union Vinicole de Gascogne.
