The soils are fairly homogeneous, a clay-limestone part as well as gravelly alluvium, this geology is ideal for the circulation of water in the vines, especially in dry periods. All Bordeaux grape varieties are allowed but Merlot remains the master in this territory (80%), it is accompanied by Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
The strength and solidity of this wine are first introduced by its sustained colour between ruby and topaz. On the nose, the aromatic bouquet is expressive, partly thanks to the Merlot. The aromas of ripe red fruits are followed by aromas of stone fruits. However, depending on the vintage and the vintage, the aromas can be very different, from strawberry, blackcurrant, cherry, liquorice, leather and sometimes even coconut! The passage into barrels often brings a vanilla aspect that completes this rich bouquet. In the mouth, we find a soft and fleshy texture. The candied and woody fruit flavours blend very well. The tannins are long and powerful. These wines have a very good ageing potential and will go very well with strong cheeses and red meats.
