Histoire

For some 40 years, the vines of Mancèdre, totally destroyed by the terrible frosts of the winter of 1956, were left entirely abandoned. The grandparents of the present owner, Jean Trocard, were too old to undertake the replanting of their vineyard. In 1994 Jean Trocard decided the take up the challenge. The task was overwhelming: literally everything had to be rebuilt. His determined will showed the way. - The will to create a wine château in the young, dynamic appellation of Pessac-Léognan. - The will to produce a new wine from this terroir, surrounded by the great classified wines of Pessac-Léognan. - The will to pursue a family history built on 15 generations of growers. - The will to see the land brought back to life and not surrendered to real estate developers.

Notes de dégustation

Beautiful deep garnet color. Morello nose along with roasted and vanilla notes. The mouth shows plenty of roundness, evoking black fruits mixed with beautiful red fruits complemented by silky tannins and great length.
