This wine has a compact nose of plum, blueberry and fresh, moist earth. On the palate, there are flavours of blackberry, cassis, plum and peppery spice. The youthful density of the mouthfeel helps enhance the deep fruit notes throughout.

  • Delivery Information

Low-yield vines are hand-harvested at optimum ripeness and spontaneously fermented in concrete tanks before being aged for up to 18 months in a combination of new (30%) and used barriques before being bottled with minimal sulphur. No oenological products (yeasts, enzymes, powdered tannins, tartaric acid, etc), no temperature manipulation, no mechanical interference of any kind.

With family roots going back three centuries, the Despagnes know a thing or two about Bordeaux. The estate as we know it today dates back to 1875 when vines were planted by the Constant-Pineau family, and it was replanted by Louis Rapin and expanded upon by Gerard Despagnes to its current size of 40 hectares, 32 of which are under vine. Nicolas Despagnes is now at the helm of the estate and has worked tirelessly to obtain organic certification (Agriculture Bio and BioCoherence in 2008 and 2010, respectively) and ultimately biodynamic certification by Demeter in 2013. 

The vineyards, which average 45 years of age, mostly planted to old varieties of Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, are situated on the gentle slopes of the plateau in Montagne, Saint-Émilion, Pomerol and Libourne. The soils here are clay-based, and provide the best raw material possible to make the classic wines of the region. As previously stated the are farmed with the strictest organic principles, with harvesting done by hand.
