    Christian and Martine’s top cuvée comes from one hectare of vines planted in 1958 straight onto gneiss in the lieu-dit of Chave. The juice is naturally a little denser with a firmer texture than the Luc above, and the wine will need a few years bottle age. Similarly made from whole bunches and aged in old barrels with no added sulphur at any stage, the wine offers tightly knit wild blackberries, hint of black pepper, mineral cut with real lift on the very long finish. For drinking now to 2024.
