“From the Earth to the glass, cultivating exception to reveal the most lovely expression.” The domain dates back to 1850 and now covers 16 hectares. For five generations, the Bertrand Family has taken care of this land in Saint-Emilion with passion and high respect for the terroir. The clay-limestone soil is located on the hillside south of Saint Emilion at the foot of the Tertre Daugay. The 35-year-old vines are grown using sustainable methods and are entirely hand harvested.
