Face Baies 2020
Discretion and precision have guided the steps of Philippe Baillarguet in Saint-Émilion since his beginnings as cellar master at Château Moulin Saint Georges and then in 1997 at the legendary Château Ausone.
Cultivating this quest for excellence is rooted in him. For this winegrower’s son and grandson, being connected to the land to harvest the fruit of his labour is in his blood. In 2006, the opportunity arose to take over a few acres and in 2010 Clos des Baies was born. Convinced by organic viticulture from the start, Philippe works the 1.15 hectares / 2.85 acres according to organic principles to produce two great “garden wines”: Clos des Baies and Face Baies, distributed exclusively by Vignobles et Châteaux.
The very enticing nose is driven by black fruit with beautiful aromatic complexity. It is pleasing on the palate, with small black berries, spicy aromas of pepper and a hint of fresh mint on the finish. It is a vertical, straightforward wine with a sincere and elegant structure.
