Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Why don’t more people talk about this wine – the answer, at 1600 cases, this is small artisanal Bordeaux. Only a few retailers carry the wine, but it is well-worth the search. It is another terroir-driven expression from Pessac-Léognan, but it is more finessed, vibrant and red fruited than many of its neighbors. This is undoubtedly in part to the high percentage of Cabernet Franc (which we love) and high percentage (50%) use of whole cluster. But it is a wine of contrast with a yin and yang quality to it. While there is concentration, there is restraint with underlying grip, precision, and energy with an inner perfume to it. The wine wears its Pessac minerality and graphite well, with a Burgundian-like touch. Expect nuances of juicy wild berries, plums, crushed flowers, stone, saline, pepper and herbs. The best is still yet to come. A wine and estate to watch and certainly another MUST-BUY recommendation from 2020 as this is the beginning of greatness.”
