Located on the foothills of Knights Valley, and comprised of rocky and loamy clay Red Hills soil, the Mon Chevalier vineyard benefits from its proximity to Mount St. Helena, whose warm and windy climate is ideal for the long ripening of red Bordeaux varietals. Handcrafted using classical winemaking techniques, this special wine is dedicated to Luc’s son, Paul Morlet. Dark red with a hue of purple, the wine has an intense, complex bouquet of red, black and blueberries intermixed with notes of graphite, wet river rock, licorice, fresh blond tobacco and a hint of lavender. Full-bodied, the palate is reminiscent of the nose, with a richly tannic yet round frame and a great intensity. The hillside tannins and classical aromatic complexity create a harmonious ensemble leading to a very long finish. Built to age for decades, this collectible wine opens up after a few years of cellaring.
