Estate Notes

François Mitjavile is the owner of this five and a half hectare estate which literally translates to 'the hill of the burping beef' referring to the oxen that used to work the steep hills of the land on the edge of the Saint-Émilion limestone plateau.

François produces just 2000 cases a year of this rich, concentrated, fruity styled wine which, in recent vintages has wooed many leading wine critics. It is good enough to be re-classified as a Grand Cru Classé or even a Premier Cru Classé in our opinion.

Reviews

"Complex, expressive nose combines black raspberry, roasted currant, licorice, earth, game and white truffle. Sweetly oaky and lush in the mouth, with mellow flavors of plum and game. An utterly singular wine with impressive opulence and palate coverage. Finishes with fine, dusty tannins. Mitjavile uses Radoux barrels to age his wine; the selection is for especially fine grain rather than any particular forest." Stephen Tanzer
