The Cabernet (80%) provides superb structure and ample fruit, all with natural acidity. The equal parts of Petit Verdot and Merlot amount to 10% each and can be viewed as the proper final "salting" to a finely prepared dish. No funny business or magic tricks in her process, simply honest, skilled winemaking from authentic Bordelais terroir. You'll find a striking color in the glass and a medley of rich fruits coming from the Cabernet: black currant, plum and juicy berries with a whisper of bay leaf and licorice to boot.

The Petit Verdot gives a kiss of spiciness, while the Merlot lends a hint of soft black cherry. The tannins are elegant and pristine. Fermentation begins in cement vats, just as it did generations ago. Finished in 2 and 3 year-old barrels, all re- used from her Château Deyrem-Valentin in Margaux. Bottled non-filtré. "Back to the future" Grand Vin de Haut- Médoc à la Christelle Sorge. She is a smart woman and we are proud to exhibit this wine for the first time ever in the U.S.
