The first references to this prestigious property date back to the 17th century.
This very distinctive terroir was picked out and used to grow vines by one of Louis 14th’s intendants. The king himself loved Saint-Emilion wines that he referred to as “nectar of the Gods”.
The nose is fruity and powerful.

The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, a good structure, a small straightness, a small freshness as well as a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy/ripe cassis, juicy/ripe raspberry and small notes of black cherry associated with fine touches of liquorice, toasted as well as very fine hints of chocolate and a subtle hint of hazelnut.
