Description

Production

Certain of the quality of the soil of a small parcel at the heart of Château Layauga in Gaillan to the north of St Estephe, Henri and his sister Anne-Marie become major shareholders in 2006. They added 7 hectares in nearby Queyrac, on the slope of La Hontane, in 2007. The slope has good exposure to sunlight, and limestone-clay soil covered with gravel. Viticulture and winemaking is in the style of Haut-Marbuzet: hand-harvesting, low yields, long-maceration with daily remontage, 50% new French oak.

Tasting notes

Classic woodspice and bramble fruit on the nose, the palate is ripe and intense with smooth, spicy oak, cloves and iodine.
