Rooted in excellence…
A peninsula of excellence…
A narrow stretch of land separating the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde Estuary, Médoc is the birthplace of exceptional wines. Only red wines can use this appellation. The sandy gravelly soil allows the Cabernet-Sauvignon grapes to fully express themselves, giving Médoc its inimitable tannic taste, well-rounded structure and longevity.
Aged 6 to 24 months, sometimes in oak barrels, Médoc wines require between two and ten years to fully express all their hidden treasures. These vary from aromas of red or black summer fruits like strawberry, redcurrant, blackberry or blueberry, to caramel, cocoa, chocolate or even tobacco and also spicy aromas such as pepper, liquorice or eucalyptus.
Wines from Médoc are known for being ideal companions for red meats such as game or lamb.
The pearl of Médoc…
Margaux is sheltered in the heart of the Médoc vineyard like a jewel protected in its velvet case. Margaux, meaning "pearl" in ancient Greek, is reputed to be the most feminine of Médoc wines because of its delicate nature and unrivalled charm. Combining the character of Cabernet-Sauvignon, the tenderness of Merlot and the subtlety of Cabernet Franc, Margaux is a garnet red when young, tending towards a more distinguished structure with age.
Margaux knows how to toy with the senses and charm with its elegant fruity bouquet and incomparable richness. The name Margaux resonates among the most prestigious appellations.
When tradition rhymes with exception…
On the right bank of Bordeaux, the Saint-Émilion vineyard is today a UNESCO world heritage site. Centred around the village of the same name whose heritage extols its rich past, it produces some of the world's most renowned wines. The Merlot grape adapts perfectly to the chalky and clay-calcareous soils and brings to the wine its legendary roundness on the palate and tannic structure.
Saint-Émilion wines are exclusively red. They are characterised by supple flavours and aromas, elegant and velvety, evoking vanilla, sweet spices, strawberries and wild redcurrants. They are auspiciously suited and will reveal their character with any type of meat or a varied cheeseboard.
The queen of sweeteness…
An exceptional micro-climate and man's expertise have created a sweet wine whose name is enough to stimulate the taste buds of wine lovers all over the world: Sauternes. The white grapes, Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle, are harvested late to significantly increase their sugar content. Even after vinification, this gives the wine its unequalled sweetness.
The golden colour progressively slides towards amber and the floral and fruity aromas blend to celebrate a complex and balanced bouquet comprising lime blossom, almond, quince and passion fruit. This wine is captivating with its elegant sweetness and exceptional aromas.
