The Hachette wine guide
This property has belonged to the same family since 1920. Philippe Thérèse, who settled here in 1987, represents the third generation and now runs a 39 ha vineyard.
THE OPINION OF THE HACHETTE WINE GUIDE
Boxwood, lemon zest and other citrus fruits, the nose clearly evokes Sauvignon (40% white, 10% grey). Neither too lively, nor too fat, fruity as you wish (nice retro-nasal on exotic fruits), the palate is balanced. Simple and of good quality.

At the other end of the department, towards the south, we find Nardique La Gravière and the Thérèse family, an old acquaintance, where son Nicolas is preparing to succeed his father, Philippe, whose motto is clear: " One quality, no prestige cuvée, and wines made", i.e. aged and ready to drink. Apart from the many wine merchants who appreciate the regularity, the private clientele has been built up by word of mouth: " My father and grandfather opened the property on the road below, the D20, which was the green route to the Pyrenees, the Arcachon Basin and Spain," says Philippe Thérèse.
50% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Black fruits, cooked fruits, quite sunny, mellow and fresh, long, toasted note on the finish, greedy and complex. Black fruits, a little more wood, powerful, mellow mouthfeel, very nice substance. Rich and long-lasting, it's an ado for the moment.
Fruits noirs, un peu plus de bois, bouche puissante, moelleuse, très belle matière. Riche et de garde, c’est un ado pour le moment.
"This is our workhorse!" Fruity nose, white peach, apricot, musky mouthfeel, core, almond note, very tasty.
Gault & Millau
A pleasantly tart note tickles the palate. This rosé is lively and fresh at the same time, bursting with small red fruits and finishing with a thirst-quenching pomegranate. An uncomplicated wine for pleasure.
AT TABLE WITH... simple and tasty dishes. Served well chilled, this wine can accompany you from the beginning to the end of a meal.
On l’achète : It can be bought directly from the estate and from various wine shops in the region.
