Owned by the Rivière family, which also owns a Saint-Émilion-based negociant firm, this estate has produced a generous, ripe wine. The 85% Merlot in the blend gives a jammy, rich character that will soften and broaden as the wine matures. A firm structure within the rich fruitiness will allow the wine to develop. Drink from 2024.
