Tasting Note:

Beautiful, perfumed ripe open-knit fruit. Overt, fragrant, vibrant and full bodied but with a certain lightness of touch. Notes of wild forest frutis, blueberry and bramble, Finely balanced and instantly likeable. This wine is produced with grapes coming from Le Méal hillside (150-200 metres altitude). It takes its name from the old French word meaning “the best”. This slope is composed of high terraces of shingles and clay. Vines are over 50 years old. The wine is characterised by a supple character, a fine balance and intense fruit aromas.
