« The adventure started twenty years ago with the acquisition of five acres of vines. I’m producing blissful wines : I love it when they are fullbodied and fruity. My endeavor is to obtain a supple and well balanced product with an elegant and longlasting taste. 

My wines are very expressive during a meal and while they are delicious to drink when they’re young, they gain roundness and fullness when aging. I feel in complete harmony with the Medoc’s soil which is highly influenced by the nearby sea.

This ground has shown quality, has proven to be resourceful, and I make a priority to care for it. All together, Château Haut Condissas, Château Tour Seran and Château La Clare, along with Château Rollan de By form a high quality vineyard. Those wines have acquired a fine reputation and are highly competitive in prestigious wine tasting competition. »

On the palate, the attack is supple, the tanic structure is much present and already mellow.
