Wines made by winemaking couple Stéphane and Christine Derenoncourt. Both consult for multiple wineries in the region and around the world. The wines are 80:20 Merlot:Cab Franc using biodynamic agriculture. The wines are only released when Stéphane and Christine feel they are ready. JANCIS ROBINSON MW 16+: A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine. Late malolactic.Deep crimson. Something distinctive on the nose – burly and concentrated. Sort of essence of Côte de Castillon! All tucked up and tense. JAMES SUCKLING 93: Big cassis and chocolate nose, the oak supporting the fruit very nicely. This is still just a little dominated by the tannins, yet it does have the ripeness and concentration to carry itself. The powerful tannic finish is really impressive and the structure gives the wine wonderful potential.
