About This Item

"In Bordeaux, we have three small “lieu-dits” or single vineyard parcels from both the right and left banks. Originally, when trying to capture what we believed would be the best site for varietal expression at the highest quality level from these communes, we spent time with Oenologist Eric Boissenot who aided our selection process to these three vineyards. The goal was simple, produce single varietal wine in the “Burgundy model” of single site expression, with the best winemaking team in the region. Our first vintage of production in Bordeaux could not have been more blessed - the famed 2016 vintage in which both banks produced superior wines.

Our 2016 left bank Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully structured example of both vintage and terroir.  It is strong, layered and masculine, but with air and time opens to its softer, more nuanced texture and aromatics.  The gravel-rich soils are ideal for this old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon.  The vineyard is adjacent to the famed Chateau Montrose, and for decades has been a Component vineyard site for excellent grand vins.

The 2016 vintage was excellent for our vineyard on the left bank.  As were most vineyards that sat in close proximity to the Gironde. We feel that this vintage is classical, built for ageing.

We treated this with with 100% New French Oak and bottles in June of 2018.

Varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
