On the nose, floral hints with vanilla. Supple and fruity on the palate with spicy notes and well-balanced tannins. The Merlot brings aromas of fresh red fruits as well as elegance and roundness. Tannat, the indigenous Gascony variety, lends notes of black fruits and brings structure to the wine.

In 1050 the Abbey of Saint-Mont was founded by Benedictine monks. The monks, as always, were particularly interested in the area as it had already been colonised by the vine.
