HISTORY
Poesia is the story of several meetings.

First of all, the meeting of two people: Hélène Garcin, a woman of passion, and Patrice Levêque, a meticulous winegrower for whom the vine is a being in its own right. Their vision of working the vine and their ardent fascination for exceptional terroirs gave birth to a life project, which took form in the type of marriage where one partner feeds on the passion of the other.

Then came the meeting between the couple and the terroirs. A complex, inexpressible notion, which creates a dialogue in spite of everything, from the first moment, from the first stride across the land. Terroirs of the sort that present themselves to man as being self-evident.

Poesia is the story of what happens when they are given their chance. The chance to create something exceptional, with the greatest respect.
"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children"

A. De Saint-Exupéry.
THE TERROIR
Perched high on the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion and swept by the wind, the Merlot vine, an age-old inhabitant here, finds the ideal conditions in this fresh soil to express its exemplary aromatic complexity.

A unique symphony of elements, where the clay and limestone base work together to offer the vine the assurance of having a perfect water supply whatever the conditions, and where the wind gently dries the leaves and berries, humidified by the exceptional climate of the region.

An arrangement between the elements that offers the vine a clean fight, an opportunity to transcend itself and thus offer the sort of fruit, rich and concentrated, whose expression bears the mark of the great wines of the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion.
 
THE WINE
Far from decorum and worldliness, a sincere wine that speaks of the soul of the vintage and not of its reflection. In Poesia, only the truth of the terroir makes its mark: The mark of the great wines of Saint-Émilion.

Saint-Émilion is of course a very large appellation with a lot of diversity and plenty of wines that lurk under the radar (...) while Poesia (is one of the) Saint-Émilions that will delight consumers who seek more over richness and body. The weak spot on the Right Bank was lower lying vineyards, where frost was especially damaging. Conditions essentially created a natural selection to the point many estates focused only on their very best parcels,(...).- Source 2017 Bordeaux – Mirror, Mirror on The Wall… - Vinous

Saint-Émilion est bien sûr une très grande appellation avec beaucoup de diversité et beaucoup de vins qui se cachent sous le radar (...) Poesia (est un des) Saint-Émilions qui raviront les consommateurs qui recherchent plus de richesse et puissance. Le point faible de la rive droite était les vignobles plus bas, où le gel était particulièrement fort. Les conditions ont essentiellement créé une sélection naturelle au point que de nombreux domaines se sont concentrés uniquement sur leurs meilleures parcelles(...).- Source 2017 Bordeaux – Mirror, Mirror on The Wall… - Vinous
