The estate has been in the family for five generations. Sister / Brother Margaux and Dorian are currently in charge of the organically farmed 51 hectare property divided up into two appellations: Francs Côtes de Bordeaux and Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux (10 hectare in red). Both of them are located on the Right Bank in the very eastern edge of the hilly Bordeaux wine region, near Saint Emilion. The terroir is composed of sub-soil made up of fossil-rich limestone covered with limestone molasse called «molasses d’Agenais». The siblings have created a realm of biodiversity, with regenerative agriculture, agroforestry, winter weed management with a local shepherd, and protection to the local fauna.
A full bodied, food friendly wine, with flavours of peach and dried grass and a crisp, textured dry finish. Baked-apple and wood aromas show strongly in this ripe wine. Balancing the toastiness, the ripe fruits are complex, peach and apple flavors going along with the spice.
