Vineyard Notes

The Margaux terroirs are there highest, with one of the most elevated gravel outcrops of the Médoc. The light and the sunshine wich bathe the vines protect them from the late spring frosts. A stream provides natural drainage, separating the two gravels outcrops, and cools the vines, thus giving them the cooler temperatures vital for thier development, protecting them both from excess water and drought.
