This Château is an invitation to travel through time. In the 12th century, the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem established a hospice here to care for crusaders and pilgrims. Cabernet Franc vines were planted on the estate to provide wine for mass. Time is still a willing accomplice today, allowing the wine to fully develop elegance and body. 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Ageing in French oakbarrels for 12 months (50% new barrels). This very elegant, harmonious wine has a beautiful deep colour and a refined, precise bouquet with notes of undergrowth and dried flowers. The palate is superb, with a remarkably smooth, feminine character. A very promising wine that can be enjoyed now and over the next few years.
