The Wine’s Story
This grand estate covers 46 hectares, and produces roughly 100.000 bottles annually. Both are important figures, but studied carefully, you’ll realize that yields are low and the aim is all about quality here. Vines averaging 30+ years grown in pretty densely planted vineyards create grapes of great character and enough concentration to produce wines of superior quality.
