On a single 69-acre (28 hectare) plot adjacent to Pomerol and the Saint-Émilion Grands Crus Classé, the 40-year-old mostly Merlot vines (along with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon) are in the terroir they express best, at the historical heart of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, Montagne Saint-Émilion. These well-aged vines have roots digging deep into the hallowed clay-limestone terroir in the southwest corner of the appellation, along the Barbanne River. The effect of these soils on the wine is a thoughtful structure.
