Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark ruby color announces a pure and elegant nose with wooded notes of black cherry and smoke. The palate is balanced with a nice envelope. The wine is straight, fine, round, characterized with a hint of balsamic and sweet spices. The tannins are ripened and coated.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
This 15th century hunting lodge carries the name of Cardinal Richelieu’s nephew, Armand du Plessis, who would have been one of the domain’s owners. It’s the Lurton family who strives today to drive environmental-friendly and ethical practices in the vineyards.
- Terroir: The 18 hectares domain lays on a clay-limestone soil with merlot for main grape variety. The vines’ average age is 25 years old.
- Viticulture: Classified as a Cru Bourgeois in 1932 thanks to the effort and investments of Mr. Delors, one of the owners, the domain keeps on thriving with the integration of the Terra Vitis agreement.
- Vinification: A plot-by-plot fermentation and maceration is followed by a 12 months French oak barrels ageing process.
