Purchased in 1973 by René Vedrenne, 2nd generation owner of Bordeaux shipper / negoce Maison Vedrenne. Now run by his grandson. Originally just a gravelly 2 ha. plot of Merlot, but neighboring plots were purchased and now is 14 ha. total.
90% Merlot / 10% Cabernet Franc. The grapes are destemmed and crushed before fermentation. The wine is kept on the skins for 3 to 4 weeks before being run off and put into barrels. A third of the oak barrels is renewed every year.
This wine has a deep red color with crushed cherry hue. On the nose delicate notes of oak and red fruits emerge followed by a velvety attack, well balanced and of good sweetness. It is full bodied with a delicate fruity and vanilla finish.
