Generations of wine growers, passionate about their craft, have forged our family’s history in the Sancerre wine region. Today we work our vineyards located in the most prestigious terroirs in the Sancerre area.
This red wine has a very intense red fruits nose, evoluting to complex spicy flavours. Its mouth is very balanced, tanins are smooth and it has a lot of freshness which brings a very long final.
