The Bernede family has headed up one of the regions oldest domaines since before the French revolution.
Today Philippe Bernede continues the family tradition and farms 60 hectares of land along the alluvial terraces of the Lot valley that are rich in siliceous, clay and limestone soils.
The microclimate of the vineyards is ideal, with southwest sun exposure and topographic protection against the frost.
Over the years Philippe has tinkered with the house blend to achieve a greater balance. Today, the blend consists of 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot, creating an intense wine with subtle, elegant tannins.
