The nose reveals notes of blackberry and plum. The mouth is fresh, racy, harmonious and reveals a small aerial side. A small acid frame leads the tasting. On the palate this Lalande de Pomerol expresses notes of red fruits (raspberry, red cherry), black fruits (blackcurrant, blueberry) and fresh fruit associated with a few notes of roasting and a subtle woody well integrated. Small drying at the end of the mouth. Good length.

Vineyard Notes
Average age of the wine is 65 years. Perron's tiny vineyard is looked after with all the care that one might devote to a garden. The soil in between the rows of vines is either turned over or grassed over. De-budding takes place in April or May, and in June or July, the eastern facing vines are deleafed and the vines in general are thinned out. The vineyard is protected from disease and pests according to the lutte raisonnée principles that dictate only using the minimum quantity of product and only when necessary. Picking is done entirely by hand and the gapes are sorted manually when they arrive at the vat house. Production: ~80,000 bottles
