The remarkable 2022 vintage: one of the best vintages of the estate
“The 2022 vintage is paradoxical: it is excessive in its climatology but its wines are anything but excessive, they are remarkably balanced, mellow without being heavy, structured without being hard. They are brilliant wines that already give a lot of pleasure and we can already see all their potential, and it’s true that in a very warm vintage like 2022 we could have feared the behaviour of the Merlots, but we can see that here, as elsewhere in Bordeaux, the Merlots have succeeded in an astonishing way. They are bursting with fruit, balance and freshness. The primeur sample is very promising.” Axel Marchal, consultant oenologist at the estate, teacher-researcher at the Institut des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin.

AOC : Haut-Médoc
Blend : 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
The robe is brilliant, of a frank red with purplish reflections. The nose presents notes of intense red fruits and an elegant woody taste. The attack is creamy, the mid-palate, thanks to presses’ work, is continuous, dense, tannins are coated and the whole presents a beautiful freshness. Harmony, complexity and intensity.
*The “en primeur early sale” is traditional in Bordeaux, it is made a few months after the last harvest and consists of reserving a vintage at its best price, which will be available after its bottling, 18 months later. Your wines will be available in September 2023.
