Our wines

BOURGUEIL
ROSÉ

This rosé of cabernet franc is the result of a vinification really different of our red wines. Here the contact between the juice and the skin of grapes is voluntarily limited to a few hours, one night  – hence its salmon freshness, its lightness, its dry and tender character at the same time.

Wine of thirst, nap and pleasure. To discover in a year following its harvest.
