Haute Valeur environnementale

Haut-Médoc AOC – Bordeaux – France

This is a great Médoc!

From a parcel-based selection among old vines with small yield, to the perfectly mastered aging period in oak barrels, this wine delivers all the concentration and elegance one may expect from a Haut-Médoc.

Located north of Saint-Estèphe, on a gravelly hilltop, this confidential production is awarded a prize every year.

Certified HVE3 as of the 2018 vintage.
