This family property produces wines of great purity that are also a pleasure to drink. The nose reveals red fruit with a hint of vanilla. The palate has good structure and concentration with a long aromatic finish. A wine full of character with all the charm of its terroir.

This small estate is the property of the Bourlon family, whose last heiress, Brigitte, took over in 2009 with her husband Eric. They are two kindhearted people and one can feel it in their wines. According to her, the organic experience is difficult in Bordeaux due to high proportion of climactic incidents. But she doesn’t regret at all when she notices the quality improvement on the wines and the better expression of fruit she has gained. Their soils are likely to give full-bodied wines. But, as organic brings finesse and elegance, the result in the glass is very harmonious.

The 2012 consists of 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc from an average of 28 year old vines. The wine has then been aged in stainless steel tanks for 6 months giving this wine a bright fruity profile with the absence of hefty oak influences.
