The 80 hectares vineyard of Lilian Ladouys is planted to 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc. The vines are old, between 40 years to 60 years of age.
The terroir is typical of Saint Estèphe with its gravel, clay and limestone soils. The estate practices organic farming methods. Malolactic fermentation takes place in tank. The wine is aged in 40% new French oak barrels for between 14 and 16 months.
"Licorice, black raspberries, tobacco, smoky cherries, spice and cedar characteristics come out in this medium/full bodied, dusty textured, forward wine which ends in a soft, red berry finish."
