Gradual hillsides of gravel and clay in this satellite of northern Saint-Emilion are the home of Monsieur Gerard Arpin and his delightful red wines. Made from 70% Merlot and equal parts of both Cabernets the wine is a deep ruby with purple hues and has a soft nose of cherry, cassis, and spice. On the palate it is quite well balanced with a solid tannic structure and a complementary soft mid-palate of ripe red berry fruit. The wine is easy drinking in its youth but should age well for the next 10 years.
