Les Vieilles Vignes
Les Vieilles Vignes is a blend of the old vines from all of our different parcels, average aged 55yrs.
Best opened or decanted one to three hours in advance to appreciate the subtle hints of violet with a compote of blueberry and blackcurrant.
It then softens without losing any of its assertive character.
