Tasting Notes: A well balanced wine from this satellite appellation of St Emilion showing the typical suppleness and accessibility of this area.

Producer Details: In the district of Montagne. The Durand family has owned the estate since the 18th century. In 1969, Mr Carrere, Miss Durand's husband took in hands the estate. This former sailor from the Royal Navy gave the estate its current shape. Since 1997, his daughter Isabelle Fort, wife of Jean-Philippe Fort, oenologist from Michel Rolland's team, has been running the estate, after having taught oenology and viticulture for 10 years.

In The Vineyard: Clay slopes. 7.7 ha.Debudding, removal of the vine-shoots by hand, leaf-thinning, green harvest. No chemical fertilizer is used, only vegetal compost added moderately depending on the equilibrium soil/vigour. Hand-Picking with a slight over-ripeness to get a better phenolic maturity of the skins and the pips.

In The Winery: Sorting by hand after total destemming on a sorting table. 20% bleeding - Cold maceration before fermentation during 3 to 4 days. Fermentation is thermoregulated stainless steel vats with daily pumping over and a long 3-week vatting. Ageing in vats and in oak barrels for 20% of the harvest.
