This wine is made with grapes from our old vines on hillsides (60 years old) of Grenache Noir and other grape varieties from our plain near the Cité de Carcassonne.
Cuvée Prestige Malbec, Grenache Noir, Cabernet Franc
All vintages are from parcels carefully selected for the quality of our vines, located in the South of France near the town of Carcassonne. This very sunny terroir with rocky soils, maritime humidity and wind, has all the conditions to create very fruity wines of great finesse. All the wines come from vineyards that are about 30 years old and all the grapes are sorted during the harvest to select only the best.
