It’s composed of 22 hectares of red vines and 12 of white vines.
The vineyard is 30 years old on average, and is planted on a is planted on a hill overlooking the Garonne with a slight slope South-North.

 
THE TERROIR
The soil is rocky, covered with large Pyrenean pebbles or old stringers.
The subsoil is composed of fine gravel and favoring natural drainage of rainwater towards the Garonne.
 
THE VITICULTURE
The main concern in our winemakers profession is the care and precision of the work in the vines to bring over the seasons.
The birth of a great wine is directly related to the quality of the grapes; from pruneling to harvesting, vine by vine, we shape the vine to attain a healthy and moderate crop with a perfect ripeness.

Grape varieties > RED WINES

CABERNET SAUVIGNON 70%
This variety is particularly well adapted to our poor gravelly soils, it often produces perfectly ripe grapes. It characterizes our wines with a great tannic structure and excellent aromatic richness including red fruit aromas (blackcurrant, cherry, raspberry...). Moreover wines made from this grape are suitable for aging and aging in barrels.

MERLOT 30%
Merlot is an early variety, that gives grapes with high sugars levels. It brings in our blend roundness, silky, and flexibility. Perfumes are complex and intense, especially in low production conditions.
Grape varieties > WHITE WINES

SAUVIGNON 50%
We are lucky to have on our property a land particularly suited to this grape variety. Sauvignon gives small grapes rich in sugars. With a low production this variety offers extraordinary flavors of citrus, tropical fruit and minerality typical of our land .

SÉMILLON 50%
Leading grape variety of white wines from Bordeaux, it gives our wines finesse, fat, round and especially its excellent aging potential. It provides generous grapes and we must be patient to reach the full maturity because it is only under these conditions it is best expressed.
