    Garnier brothers have planted four hectares of young vines in Lignorelles on a south facing slope renowned as the finest hillside in the AC, in a sandy soil overlying portlandian limestone. Vinified in stainless steel and bottled after a year, this is an intensely saline mineral wine, with much more depth of fruit than normal. For drinking now to 2018.
