...Aromatic, rIpe melon, citron and glacé melon aromas. Medium to full-bodied, rich and intense, with very good length and balance. Dry. Quite delicious. (4,000 bottles made. 70/30 semillon/sauvignon gris).

A very attractive, bright and expressive dry white with a lot of citrus, some cassis and fresh herbs (from sauvignon blanc). Mid-weight and very crisp, this is really refreshing right now but should be good through at least 2022.

The soils see a rich mixture of rocks, clay, limestone and gravel that rests on the surface and of course below, deep in the terroir. Beneath the surface lies a complex blend of different soils, sub soils and terroir. Over the past several decades, the general trend in the Saint -Estèphe vineyards has been to add more Merlot, which has added a lot of softness to the tannins and the wines. Merlot works well in the appellation due to the large amount of clay found in the soils. in the appellation due to the large amount of clay found in the soils.
