Company details

Located on the appellations of Fronsac and Canon-Fronsac, the wine estate covers an area of 23 hectares, including 17.72 hectares of vineyards (1.69 Hectares in Canon-Fronsac and 16.03 Hectares in Fronsac).

The vines are located on a clay-limestone plateau, which gives our wines a strong character. The vineyard consist of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Harvesting is mechanical with manual sorting before fermentation development. Winemaking is made using traditional methods in concrete vats with an average maceration of three weeks. Our Canon-Fronsac are aged in oak barrels for a period between 12 to 18 months.

Our wines are recommended with grilled or roasted meats, and sauces, game or cheeses.
