Wine rated (guide 2016) : 15/20 (Bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2018) : 1*Étoile (stars en devenir ou vignerons de qualité à la production de bon niveau, vous ne serez pas déçus en dégustant les vins de ces domaines)

About the vineyard : Cette propriété, qui appartient à la famille Gervoson (groupe Andros), produit avec régularité des vins agréables et accessibles. Doté d'un beau terroir sur les hauteurs de Léognan, non loin de Haut-Bailly et de La Louvière, le cru bénéficie également d'un outil de vinification moderne avec la reconstruction complète d'un tout nouveau cuvier en béton. Bruno Lemoine en est le directeur depuis 2007 et François Gaudichon, natif de Cognac, diplômé d'oenologie à Dijon et formé chez les frères Confuron à Vosne-Romanée, est le nouveau maître de chai depuis juin 2015. Ils apportent un supplément de précision dans la définition stylistique des vins, tant sur le plan aromatique des blancs (avec notamment des vinifications en cuve ovoïde et sept cuves en bois afin d'affiner davantage la sélection parcellaire) que dans la structure tannique des rouges. Et, depuis le millésime 2015, Michel Rolland a été remplacé par Stéphane Derenoncourt comme conseiller.

Established in September, 1987, the Bordeaux appellation of Pessac-Léognan sits on the ancient “Gravels of Bordeaux” and was undoubtedly the starting point of viticulture in the region, 2000 years ago. Indeed, under the Roman Empire man already understood that this area, which now encompasses all of the Crus Classés of the Graves region, is particularly well suited to winegrowing. ...
