This is the flagship wine with some of the vines over 100 years of age. A blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc and cropped at a microscopic 17 hectoliters per hectare this is a sensational wine. The alcohol hit 15.5% which must be one of the highest levels ever in Bordeaux according to the brilliant consulting oenologist Claude Gros. Dense purple with a sweet nose of acacia flowers crushed rocks blueberry liqueur and creme de cassis it is dense full-bodied and loaded with glycerin and intensity. The acidity is present the tannins ripe and the wine big fleshy even massive. Drink it over the next 10-15+ years.

Big and juicy with loads of blackberry and chocolate character. Full and velvety textured. Very long finish.

From a tiny 1.3 hectare vineyard situated in St. Pey d'Armens to the east of St. Emilion the average age of the vines is 100 years. Hand-harvested into small crates; table-sorted as at Gracia and entirely hand-stemmed. Yields of only 17 hls/ha. Aged for 12 months in 100% new oak. 15.5% alcohol. The nose displays aromas of plum raisin and sweet blackberry followed by mineral licorice and a hint of floral. With great texture and wonderful richness the palate is structured and powerful as the tannins and in sync with the acidity lingering onto a long finish. Drink from 2015-2025. 300 cases produced and Claude Gros consults.
