Description

This beautiful Haut-Medoc is a classic blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, with sumptuous red berry fruits, a hint of smoke, cedar, and fresh tobacco on the nose. The palate is rather lifted, showing vibrant fruit and a touch of earth, and it is very approachable. It has great structure that hints at its aging ability, but it is more than ready to pop open at your next dinner party.

The winery is rudimentary, at least compared to the regional norm, and is conveniently placed next to their house in the middle of the Landes. Fermentations take place in cement tanks with 20-50% whole bunches, extraction is tailored to each cuvee and cepage – it is as light as possible (especially on the cabernets) with a few remontages at the start followed by pigeages done by hand for precision. The wines are manipulated as little as possible at all stages, they are neither racked nor ouille during their 12-21 months elevage in old barrels and diamond-shaped concrete tanks – it allows Michel to use very low levels of sulphur of around 25mg/l total.

Michel Theron moved to Bordeaux in 1988 from the Languedoc in the south of France to study winemaking. His original plan was to complete his studies there, and then move back to the Languedoc to take over the family estate, but love prevailed when he met his Bordelaise wife. Not long after, the couple purchased a small parcel in the village of Cantenac in the Haut-Medoc in 1993 and produced their first vintage in 1994. The estate is now certified biodynamic and covers 7 hectares in Cantenac, Arsac, and Margaux on soils of gravel, sand, and some clay.
