    This comes from a massale selection on 3309 rootstock, from the marl vineyards of La Touraize and Petit Curoulet (planted in 1980). Destalked 100% by hand, this is made by a semi-maceration whole grape fermentation, unfined and unflitered with just 20mg/l of sulphur, giving a subtle, red fruited, spicy wine with hint of game and good bite on the finish. For drinking now to 2019.
