Dark in color, rich, filled with rich, ripe, lush fruits, jam, freshness and length. Not much is made, and it’s worth seeking out for the combination of quality and value. From 100% old vine Merlot, with low yields of only 17 hectoliters per hectare, the wine reached 14% ABV. This wine is a Jeffrey Davies Selection Exclusive. 90-92 Pts

Open, soft, round and sweet, with licorice, fresh dark cherries and chocolate tones. This easy to like wine is not for cellaring. Drinking over the 5-7 year.

La Roncheraie From a small 1.4 hectare vineyard, the wine is made from 100% Merlot that average 30 years in age. Inky in color, with an oak, licorice and jammy berry perfume. Dense, thick and mouth coating, this wine exchanges complexity for hedonistic pleasure. Less than 300 cases were produced. 89-91 Pts
