Family estate since the 14th Century. The wines are made only from the grapes cultivated on the estate and are vinified and matured in their cellar which dates back to the 11th Century. The family believe in the primacy of terroir and harvest as late as possible to maximise the potential of the grapes and to give the best expression of terroir. J-Hugues started working on the wines at the age of sixteen and has been described as the ‘Pope of Saint Bris’. The estate has worked in organic viticulture since 1993.

Red wine garnet colour, with ruby highlights. The nose has scents of wood fruits, spices, liquorice and a scent of roasting. The palate is elegant with fine tannins and notes of liquorice and jam.
