This is one of the oldest estates in Listrac Médoc, purchased by the Meyre family in 1999. The 20-hectare vineyard stretches over the whole appellation, thus enjoying the various soil types of the Listrac Médoc terroirs.
The majority of old vines endows this wine with the typical character of the greatest wines of the appellations.
Nathalie and Julien manage this property together, marrying traditional methods with modern techniques.
This wine has a fine density. The nose is very aromatic with notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and black cherry. The tannic structure is rich, silky and ample with a long finish.
