Tasting Note:

Cedric and Paul Valade's property in St Emilion comprises three different parcels from around the village of St Christophe des Bardes, not far from Barde Haut and Troplong Mondot. In 2016 it also incorporates a new parcel of very old vines planted in the '40s. The clay here is deep, cool and water retentive, so ideally placed to cope with the drought and heat of July and August. Produced from 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this is an impressive dark fruited offering with notes of crème de mûre, spice, cocoa nib and sweet earth. The mid palate has a good sweet core of pure blackberry. There does appear to be quite liberal use of oak, but there is more than enough density and concentration to cope.
