The Wines

Merlot (2011), the 181 clone, destemmed, 10-12 day vinification, pumping overs, raised 90% vat, 10% 7-8 year 228-litre oak casks 6-7 months, unfined, filtered, first wine 2014


(tank, racked yesterday, bottling in two weeks) bold dark robe. The bouquet gives black fruit lozenges with a likeable sweetness. The palate is fat, holds 2015 strength, and the fruit involves flavours of damson, cassis, blackberry. The tannins have powdery intent. This has w.o.w. drinking potential. “I discarded half the crop in July; yield was 45 hl/ha,” Emmanuel Barou. To 2020  Apr 2016


red robe; soaked raspberry shows in a prominent nose, has an easy, sweet-toned nature. Chocolate and blackberry coulis feature on the palate, which is rounded, and assured on its clean finish. Serve lightly chilled. €9. 12.5°. To 2018  Apr 2016
