This is a small family-run estate, with just 6.5 hectares under vine, and has been handed down from father to son since the 18th century. The current winemakers are brothers Sébastien and Fabrice Bordenave-Montesquieu. They employ many of the principles of biological and biodynamic viticulture.
Detailed attention is paid to the working of the ground and the influence of the moon. The result is healthy grapes with both high sugar content and maximum phenolic ripeness - i.e. perfect balance.
