In the heart of Cantenac (adjacent to Margaux), the 0.4 ha vineyard is planted with of pre-phylloxera vines farmed organically and the yield is minuscule. Baragane is the local name for wild leeks which grow among the vines. This wine is a field blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, along with ancient varieties such as Goudale and Carménère. Perfumed cassis on the nose which follow through on the elegant palate. Lifted and textured. Very accomplished harmony.
Laurence Alias and Pascale Choime followed their dream to produce wine in Médoc. Closeries des Moussis is their minuscule estate, sandwiched between world-renowned châteaux. What they produce is pretty outstanding.
