    Log in to view prices

    This is the main cuvée of the domaine from seven hectares of vineyards spread over six well placed parcels with an average vine age of 25 years. Nathalie Oudin is not afraid to allow the wine good exposure to air during the malolactic fermentation. The wine has very precise citrus fruit, good texture and a saline quality suggestive of the limestone bedrock, and feels very composed and at ease. For drinking now to 2020.
