After a gap of several years, we were thrilled to bring this wine back into our selections with the 2018 vintage, and this 2020 is another winner – and is superb value. The vines are situated on a gently-sloping plateau leading down to the Barbanne stream, with the Pomerol appellation just cross the water. It is one of the best terroirs of Lalande-de-Pomerol, with gravelly soils making up 70% of the estate, the balance being gravel mixed with clay or sand. The vines here have an average age of 37 years, the blend in 2020 being 73% Merlot, with 19% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is spending a year in French oak barrels, of which 40% are new. Colour is rich, deep purple, aromas are fragrant, open and fresh. Palate has appealing fruit from the start, with broad fleshiness, gentle tannins and a soft finish (for drinking 2023-2030+).
