In fact he produces consistently award-winning wines at a fraction of the price of his illustrious neighbours.
The 2007 vintage has won a host of high scores from Masters of Wine, and awards, including Three Stars (Decanter) and 16.5 (Jancis Robinson MW).
After classic plot vinification, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 to 18 months, giving birth to a supremely well balanced Haut-Médoc with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot roundness and freshness. The 2007 is a great wine: powerful on the nose, with spicy notes of honey, jammy plums and blackberry and roasted coffee and bread. The roundness is conferred by the fruit and a good grip of wood. Superb balance and great complexity.
