This is a tiny property (just 13.5 acres) which has belonged to the Masson family since 1873, its hillside vineyards being situated on one of Saint-Emilion’s classic slopes, between Châteaux Pavie and La Gaffelière. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc make up the assemblage, with the wine now ageing in 60% new oak barrels. Colour is very pretty ruby-purple of medium depth, the nose showing refined, fresh, fragrant aromas, recalling reds cherries and dried rose petals. Palate has richly-built, charming fruitiness, with gently-textured tannins. The finish is harmonious, long and full of finesse. This little-known gem is one of the un-sung delights of Saint-Emilion, at an exceptionally reasonable price (for drinking 2021-2029+).
