Owner Maxime Saint Martin is the youngest winemaker in the appellation but is the 3rd generation on this soil. Just as the plateau drops away from Cos d’Estournel, Maxime can be found tending to his vines.
The vineyard is situated on some of the finest terroir of Saint Estephe, on the hallowed gravel plateau shared among parcels from Château Montrose, Cos d’Estournel and Haut Marbuzet. Winemaking is done in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and the wine is transferred into oak barrels for 12 month of ageing. This enhances the fruit in this wine and there are no hard tannins, rusticity or dryness. The result is a very enjoyable Saint Estèphe.
