Certified Organic. From 80 year-old vines in "Petits Monts" and "Grand Monts" towards the top of the slope above Benais, facing roughly southwest. Soils are clay over Turonien limestone (tuffeau, craie micac�e). This is the terroir giving the most elegant and age-worthy Bourgueils. 18 month elevage ; 40% in cuve inox, 20% in one new 400 liter barrel, 20% in one-year and 20% in two-year old barrels, assembled two months before bottling. This will be a sensational mature wine, best to wait eight to ten years, or more, then drink until 2040.
