Highlights

BRAND Napa Valley's stunning vineyards on the eastern slopes above Oakville combine the energy, power and wild character of a hillside with something sophisticated and rare. In 2019, the "See Clone" Cabernet Sauvignon stood out among several exceptional vineyard blocks and was fermented in a new Hermitage Oak upright to accentuate its bright fruit and lush texture. The winemakers selected a single barrel that delivers a vibrant, expressive and seductive wine.

Winemaker, Philippe Melka

My journey started at Chateau Haut Brion (where my passion for cabernet-based blends and sauvignon blanc began) and I completed a masters program in Agronomy and Enology under the direction of Professor Sequin, the renowned terroir specialist. I was fascinated by the relationship between soil and wine quality,
a fascination which continues today.

Yearning to know more, I set out for Napa Valley (Dominus Estate), Western Australia (Chittering Estate), Chianti in Italy (Badia O Coltibuono) and Bordeaux (Chateau Petrus) where I divided my time between soil study and winemaking. However, the great diversity of terroirs I found in Napa Valley, and its potential for extraordinary wines, was a revelation to me.
