The origin of the vineyard goes back from XVII century. In the 1868 edition of “Bordeaux et ses vins” (ed. Feret et fils), the vineyard was already quoted among the most famous wines produced in Lussac. In those days, the monks of the abbey, closed, sourced in this place. Representing the fourth generation of Dubreuil family, Jean Pierre leads the vineyard, large of 15 hectares, with passion and like the worthy heir he is of his ancester’s.
The typical characteristics of the soil, the principled tillage of the vines, the harvest made at optimal maturity, the traditional winemaking completed with high follow-up made by an enologist, allow to develop a range of remarkable wines, with sharpness and distinction.
Aromas of cassis, blackberry and blackcurrant, this is a full-bodied wine with excellent structure and length.
