Bought by the Cathiards in 1990 all organic and 1/2 of the wines are biodynamic 78 hectares, 11 are white and this is the second wine which is the young vines.  They are the first winery to separate the CO2 and recycle it they have a unique process the cover the vat with a hat and then link it to a pipe and the CO2 looks like cocaine they use some of it in the fertilizers and they sell the rest to the cosmetic industry, they call this circular economy they also do all their own compost and they grow their own rootstock keeping the DNA of their own vines.  


The 2014 vintage is a classic plus, somewhere in between a vintage like 2011 and 2012 very pure fruit fresh.  2103 they used twice the amount of pickers and they only had one day to harvest the Merlot as the Black Sunday a huge rainstorm came and after that there was no reason to pick, less body but nice wines for early drinking low production.  A

A blend of 60/40 Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from 25 year old vines or less.   A nice amount of ripe currant and plum fruit with notes of coffee and some gravelly earth, notes of coco/mocha and more coming out as the wine opens.  A delicious wine very forward and precocious with fine tannins and that cigar box spice with fresh minerality showing through the finish.  Finish 40+    Excellent
