Why do we love it?
Both Saint Emilion and organic and biodynamic, Les Piliers de Maison Blanche 2016 is all you were looking for in a Bordeaux and you didn't even know it until today. When you‘ll try Nicolas Despagne's creation, you will review everything you believed in and everything you knew until now. Yes, it's that good!

Despagne family has been involved in the vineyard at Saint Emilion since 1812. As far as we can tell, they have several years of experience in both cultivation and winemaking. Since 2009 the winery has been certified for organic farming and since 2013 for biodynamic. Nicolas leaves nothing to chance for more than 5 minutes, contrarily he is constantly looking for the what, how, and why in everything related to his land and wine.

Inspired by Chateau Palmer and Chateau Margaux, he planted orange and other trees among his vines. Due to climate change, he dared to change the composition of his wines, replacing a percentage of Merlot with Cabernet Franc. So, Les Piliers de Maison Blanche consists of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak French barrels for 18 months and after that, it is bottled unfiltered without the addition of corrective agents. The result has impressive fruit concentration and unique complexity.

Les Piliers de Maison Blanche 2016 is an amazing wine that will conquer even the most demanding palates.
