1★ – Guide Hachette des Vins 2023

This vintage of excellence comes from a selection of the best plots of the Nantes vineyard. In addition to the requirements to qualify for the “cru” appellation, patient, meticulous and rigorous work is added, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. This cuvée, vinified for at least 36 months, reflects the best that our terroir offers.
