is a prestigious sub-region of Bordeaux that,
despite its lofty reputation,
only came into existence as an official appellation
in 1987. Its AC status in part is a by-product
of the organized effort to ward off the ever-present
danger of development due to its proximity to
the city of Bordeaux.
This traditional Bordeaux blend of Cabernet
Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit
Verdot is a modern-style wine with plenty of
fruit and balance. It features exceptional aromatics,
with just a touch of sweetness from aging in
new oak for a short period. Ample body and a
supple and complex structure complete this very
well-rounded Bordeaux rouge.
