Dear pebbles 1954

By Michael Ganne

Michael Ganne is originally from the Médoc region of Bordeaux and naturally chose to dedicate himself to the wine business. Yet his unswerving taste for novelty spans beyond the great Bordeaux wines…


“Beautiful elegance and finesse.”

**** (great)

In Bordeaux during the 1950s, winemakers demonstrated an unwavering commitment to quality despite labour shortages and vineyard damage. They embraced advancements in viticultural science and technology, evolving winemaking practices to ensure consistent grape quality and greater control over production.

Cellar-master tasting note (September 2021)
A wonderful surprise for this off-vintage, this very pale coloured wine offers a remarkably perfumed bouquet with a seducing potpourri of spring flowers, followed by dried red fruits, cranberries, cherries and plums, and subtle forest floor notes. The palate is highly perfumed with a lacy, delicate texture and a long, nuanced finish. Beautiful elegance and finesse.

A difficult year with a growing season that was cool and damp on the whole. Careful selection and handling for the vinification resulted in attractive, soft, well flavoured wines.

The Bordeaux harvest officially started October 10th.

Blend (approximate) 
65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot Noir,
5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
