"In the same family for four centuries, this estate is now run organically. A combination of mainly Merlot and Cabernet Franc gives structure and perfumed black fruits that have combined into a dense while balanced wine. Acidity and freshness are developing within the structure. Drink from 2022."

"There’s a very bright red-plum and boysenberry edge here with abundant red berries, following to the palate and delivering a punchy, assertive and crunchy young red. A blend of 60 per cent merlot, 30 per cent bouchet (cabernet franc), 7 per cent pressac (malbec) and three per cent cabernet sauvignon. From organically grown grapes. Try from 2020."
