Until 2014 Michel Rolland had provided consultancy input at this property for many years, first to the late Jean-Michel Arcaute, then to Jean-Louis Laborde and finally to his son, Ronan. The style has remained consistent throughout the period. Ripe to very ripe, full, rich and almost opulent with a supple silky texture, the wine had always been bottled with neither fining nor filtration and was aged in 100% new oak until 2004 when policy was changed to ageing in only 60% new oak which has resulted in the wines being more approachable earlier. Ronan is now the driving force of the estate and apart from purchasing new vineyards to add to the size of the estate, now approaching 12 hectares, the old wooden vats used for vinification have now been replaced (since the 2014 vintage) with state-of-the-art, temperature controlled stainless steel vats to allow for greater control of the development of the wines. Since 2009, the wines have been continuously improving in quality and now rank amongst the best in Pomerol. Prices are very reasonable for the quality, but they do vary depending on the vintage.
