This is among the oldest estates in the commune, being on the site of a Roman villa, the occupants of which very likely made their own wine hereabouts. The Barruol family bought the estate (which was first documented in 1416) in 1570. Currrent incumbent Louis Barruol works 15 hectares of old vines and, since 1997, has also had a negociant business.

"the robe is still very dark. Woe – the nose has a lovely rounded appeal, is sleek, glistening and expressive. There are airs of licorice, thyme, pepper – there is a real terroir speech in the glass. This is elegant, properly classy wine. It has floral, nice tubby features, is still very young, has grace and length, and channels into a direct run of dark fruit with menthol notes. Very good, very stylish." John Livingstone-Learmonth
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
