The Château has incredibly old vines with the majority on their own root stock, rather than grafted on to phylloxera resistant American root stock as is the norm in Bordeaux.
The vineyards are planted with 35% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Petit Verdot, and apparently some Malbec had previously been planted.
The proprietor Jean-Pierre Boyer does not release the wine through the Bordeaux en primeur system, but rather releases the wines when they are ready to be drunk.
Both the 2010 and 2000 are 12.5% alcohol and offer delightful cool Bordeaux fruit and complexity.
