"The incomparable thrill of getting so much out of a terroir that seems so austere at first sight; the wonderful sensation of working purely for pleasure, without any other guide than the quest for excellence; the exaltation that comes from giving our very best, day after day; finally, the emotion we share with others when we taste the wine and its expression of all that passion. Many and varied are the emotions that make up this micro-cuvée shaped by the craftsman's skill and the soils of the Médoc, this earth that is always so generous as long as we are generous in return."
