Vinification : This Cuvee, classified in the appellation Vin de Pays de l’Atlantique, is produced on chalky plots on the shores of the Garonne. The average age of the vineyard is 20 years. This wine has been elaborated from the varietal which has been discovered in Bordeaux only 200 years ago: the Merlot.
