Vine Yard and Location: The estate is located on the eastern side of the Saint-Emilion plateau, out towards Puisseguin. It is really quite small – just 5.5 ha of vines are planted – but even in such a small area, two distinct soil types are to be found. Some of the parcels consist of clayey limestone, others of gravelly sand, and being able to play with these two different 'ingredients' means that the resulting wine has an impressive level of complexity.
