Highly acclaimed by Jancis Robinson, Robert Parker and Wine Spectator.

Rising star Helene Soual-Kopp and her husband Frederic work her ancestral vineyard on the border of Saint Julien, and on a similar terroir, made up of white pebbles on clay and chalk with deep Pyrenees gravel. She only uses the best grapes out of 32 hectares to produce 90,000 bottles annually. The vines are worked entirely by hand. Grass grown between the vines and minimal human intervention including compost made from old vines, horse manure and natural fertiliser. No chemicals are used. Grapes are selected on the table, and traditional temperature-controlled maceration takes place over 4 weeks, with stirring as slow as possible. Only the first juice from maceration is used. Light, slow filtration by drawing off. The wine is aged in fine grained French oak. We are lucky enough to have our own allocation of this much lauded wine.

In the glass

Deep ruby colour with violet tinge. Very expressive, elegant, wild blackberry, prune and griotte cherry character.  Superb balance with a concentrated and dense finish along with fig, sweet spices, and a marshmallow and liquorice touch. Long, dense finish with soft and complex black fruits and hints of spice. Exceptional value for money.
