Stephan von Neipperg approaches winegrowing from a highly ecological point of view. Maintaining the vineyard's natural equilibrium contributes to making a pure, unique wine that expresses the individuality of its terroir (soil and microclimate).
"This is one of St.-Emilion's most impressively constituted and expressive wines. From its saturated purple color, to its soaring aromatics (pain grille, jammy black fruits, chocolate, roasted coffee, and smoke), this full-bodied, meaty, chewy, powerful wine is loaded with extract, sweet tannin for the vintage, and possesses a layered, multidimensional finish. It should continue to improve for a decade, and drink well for 15-20 years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020."
"One of the best St.-Emilions going this vintage. Lovely aromas of crushed berries, flowers and a touch of oak. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. Has a really good core of fruit. Best after 2000."
