Situated on the plateau of Floressas, above Puy L'Evèque and the Lot vally, the Saint
Robert vineyard benefits from an exceptional position from it's south facing exposure and
it's marly limestone soil.
The classic vinification process, with the grape juice pumped up from the bottom of the vat and poured back on to the layer of skins and pips on the surface during 8 to 10 days, produces an extremely expressive wine with a ruby tinted body. The Côt grapes contribute to it's structure, whilst the Merlot and Tannat grapes develop it's aroma and powerful bouquet. This wine surprises with it's intense fruit; it is fleshy, almost sweet with it's delicate, full tannins.
The harvest produces about 1350 hectolitres of wine; only the best years are bottled.
