On the sandy Medoc plains around the village of Pauillac, down a dirt track road there are two small parcels making up about 30 rows of 60-year-old Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted by Sophie Martin’s father and grandfather. They sold the grapes to local cooperatives until 2010, when neighbouring coop growers started selling their land to Lynch-Bages, Sophie decided to build a barn in her garden and buy winemaking equipment. 

Her 0.62 hectares of Pauillac vines in the Bages lieut-dit produce around 3 - 4,000 bottles each vintage, making her the smallest Pauillac producer by a short mile and it’s with celebration that I welcome her wines onto the UK market


Viticulture and Vinification: Manual harvest. Concrete fermentation. 12 months in tank before bottling.



Ripe fruit, pepper, plum, blackberry, generous texture with a gentle chewiness, elegant finish.
