This is one of St-Emilion's foothill (pieds de cotes) vineyards planted with 90% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vinification is classic Stephan von Neipperg and Stephane Derenoncourt... This is one of St-Emilion's foothill (pieds de cotes) vineyards planted with 90% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vinification is classic Stephan von Neipperg and Stephane Derenoncourt. Undoubtedly the finest effort this property has yet produced the black-colored 2000 offers up sexy notes of espresso chocolate Asian spices black cherry liqueur and blackberries. Opulent chewy and powerful this deep full-bodied wine has layers of ripe fruit huge power yet a classic well-delineated style. A brilliant wine. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2019.

Subtle yet rich. Refined yet powerful. Full-bodied with super silky tannins yet it's elegant and caressing. Joy to taste. Fantastic l'Oratoire. From the same people who bring you La Mondotte and Canon-La Gaffelière. Best... Subtle yet rich. Refined yet powerful. Full-bodied with super silky tannins yet it's elegant and caressing.
