A vibrant red wine with aromas of dark cherry, rich red forest fruits and floral notes of lavender and violet. The palate has hints of white truffle, hazelnut, and warm spices with glimpses of anise and clove, rounded off with herbaceous undertones. The finish is gripping, velvety and lingering.
Dark in colour, with a powerful nose of ripe black fruits and violet notes. An elegant and complex palate. A dense bouquet with a beautiful tannic base, fruity and fresh on the finish, well balanced.
Grapes: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc
Wine has been in the blood of the Petit family since the eighteenth century but they did not buy this particular Château until 1998. Situated in the commune of Néac, what makes this property so special is the south-west facing, clay/gravel slope on which it sits, just across the Barbanne valley from its near neighbour Pétrus. These conditions are perfect for the ripening of Merlot and Cabernet Franc
Deeply coloured, delicious, full of dark ripe berry fruit characters. From the heart of the beautiful village of Cérons.

A great example from the lesser known Cotes de Bourg Bordeaux Region.Rich, purple colour with a brooding, peppery nose. Lush cassis fruit on the palate, with spicy, aromatic and floral edges. Chocolate oak nicely melts into the background.Country: FranceRegion: Cotes de BourgABV:13.5%Grapes: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, MerlotCotes de Bourg is an appellation of the Bordeaux region, producing primarily red wine, but also a small quantity of white. The Merlot grape dominates the vineyards here – it thrives in the areas with cooler, moist, clayrich soils, while Malbec does better in the gravel and sanddominant parts of the Cotes de Bourg. The wines are of a younger drinking style, but will also age reasonably well for five to ten years.
