This is a wonderful Le Bon Pasteur with incredibly silky tannins that fill the mouth. It’s full-bodied yet ever so agile and bright. The tannins build at the end, as is the case in other top wines of the vintage.
This 7 hectare property is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc situated on clay, gravel and sandy soils. The average age of the vines is 30+ years. The wine is fermented in small stainless steel tanks before being aged in new French oak barrels for 15-18 months dependant on the vintage.
