Peter Sisseck (Dominio de Pingus) and Silvio Denz (Château Faugères) discovered these 7.5 hectares of prime quality terroir, the lieu-dit of Rocheyron, on the edge of the famous limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion. The vineyard is situated in Saint-Christophe-de-Bardes and is planted with Cabernet Franc and Merlot of 60 and 40 year old vines respectively. The vineyard is organic, the better to fulful the main philosophy behind this venture, namely that the finished wine should be the most honest translation of this chosen terroir. Vinification, to the same end, is minimal.
"Jet-ruby in colour this is instantly inviting, the nose offering a profusion of violet and red berries complemented by fennel notes. The palate, similarly, is fresh, lifted and rich in red fruit, lively though serious supported by grippy tannins. Fine and chiselled this is a wonderfully refined, elegant translation of the vintage - bravo to Peter and his team."
