This is a very special, rare wine from a 3 hectare vineyard planted in 1939 in the Margaux commune of Macau. It's rare to find a Bordeaux-Supérieur in the Médoc, the more so when it has such a high percentage of Petit Verdot. Vigneron Patrice de Bortoli is the PV specialist in the whole of Bordeaux - the grape gives distinct freshly milled black pepper and spicy notes to the wine. Oak aged for 14 months in recent barrels, this has a very supple, unforced texture, only displayed by wines with real breed. Best carafed at the last moment.
Grapes: 50% Merlot, 25% Petit Verdot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon
