Count Stephan von Neipperg, owner of several famous Bordeaux properties, including Cháteaux Canon La Gaffeliére and La Mondotte, sought out the Bessa Valley where the wonderful clay-limestone soils showed him the potential to make great wines.
In the shadow of the dramatic Rhodope Mountains, these soils provide the structure, strength and minerality that allows Stephan to create wonderful wines that are full of power and elegance.
This wine shows a deep purple colour. The nose explodes with vanilla and menthol aromas, followed by strong blackberry and raspberry nuances. The mouth is starting with a round attack, followed by some structured woody tannins and a red fruits in the middle.
To be drunk with red meat and cheese, this excellent wine can age for 5, 7 years easily.
