The site for this wine, known as La Charmille, is situated on the plateau overlooking the village of Monprimblanc about 45 kilometers south of Bordeaux. The soils are a combination of sand, limestone and clay and here they are planted to Merlot (65%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (35%). The cuvaison occurs in temperature-controlled vats with a maceration on the order of two weeks. The wine is then racked into small barrels, one-third of which are new, for an élevage of 15 to 18 months.
