Pairing between finesse and powerful. Delicate and complex.


This wine expresses all the finesse of our gravel and ruby clay soils. A blend of Cabernet Franc et Sauvignon (65%) and Merlot. This is a very delicate Côtes de Bourg, with silky tannins, a fruity aroma and delicate oak.
Our cabernets Francs and Sauvignons are located on the most clayey soils of Grave
As all our grapes, they are destemed and not crushed, barreling 20 minutes maximum after the harvest.
The Merlots are picked 7 to 10 days before the cabernets, that ones are added on the merlots in fermentation, this is we call the co-fermentation. We do the blend of the grape variety from the harvest. Batting time 25/35 days.
Le Terroir is matured in 500L oak casks of different vintages ( new to 4/5 years) for 14 to 18 month according to the vintage.
The 500L barrel allow a sweet maturing, less oaky
