  • As of 2018, Jean-Francis Pécresse is proud to be able to say: "I've done it". This is the Château's second year of conversion to organic viticulture and it has been a success, without mildew causing too much trouble. Pécresse is also working towards Ecocert certification and is preparing for the first year of production, in 2019, of some very promising parcels that have been replanted at 8,000 vines per hectare.

    Contrary to what we might expect from such a sunny summer, the wine is neither alcoholic nor overly tannic; instead, it is redolent with "the silky elegance of the Merlot and the pure minerality of perfectly mature Cabernet Franc". The autumn weather meant that the only concern, once picking started on 30 September, was to gauge the maturity of the individual parcels.

    "This 2018 comes from a limestone plateau on the Right Bank made of ancient fossilised sea creatures and it has exactly the refinement I would expect of a wine from that terroir," he concludes.

  • Surface : 4,5 ha

    Soils : calcareous and calcareous-clay  

    Grapes : 90% of merlot, 10% of cabernet franc
