On the labels of this field is none other than Dionysus who plays the flute. According to legend, he would have pulled out his instrument to get out of the clutches of malicious hackers. By playing, the ship would be filled with wine and vine have blocked the trains. More recently and most certainly, the vineyard Cadet-Bon is known since the 18th century and after a complicated 20th century, the castle has regained the honor of ranking Grands Crus in 1996. Since 2001, Guy and Michèle Richard are at the head of the property and are advised by Stéphane Derenoncourt, famous consultant who officiates in many vineyards of the Right Bank. The vineyards are worked in green and with the mechanical strength, to reduce chemicals and crop protection inputs. They occupy 7 hectares of which 6 are in one piece, on the limestone plateau in the heart of the Saint-Emilion, with starfish, fossil typical places. In the winery, you will find wood, thermoregulation and fragmented vinification. You will find mostly the passion and expertise of a couple who puts his soul in his wines.

Vintage Description

A good quality vintage. Harsh weather conditions and rainy harvest have helped to produce very different wines depending on the properties. Castles having conducted a rapid harvest (400 people Lafite Rothschild) produced supple wines, elegant and deliciously scented. Pomerol, Saint-Emilion, Medoc and Graves red among the best successes. Sweet wines are elegant, fruity and good guard.
