The isolated vineyard is a single block bordering the pines of the vast Landes forest. Since the Bernard family took over, the vineyard has grown from 15 hectares to 45 hectares with 10,000 plants per hectare - an unusually high density for this area. This major planting spree meant that the vines didn't approach maturity until the noughties and since then, the wines have consistency outperformed their price tag. The rich gravel soils are best suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, which accounts for two-thirds of the red vines with Merlot accounting for much of the remainder. When it comes to whites, there are just 6.5 hectares planted with Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
