60+ year old vines on average. A selection of the finest fruit from his oldest vines. Vieilles Vignes adds another layer of intensity and depth. Another naked example of old vine Cabernet Franc.

Wine SpectatorThis is juicy and youthfully compact, with a ball of dark currant and cherry compote flavors wrapped in light bay leaf, tapenade and warm earth notes. Fresh acidity lets the finish linger. Should age nicely. Best from 2020 through 2028. 150 cases made, 50 cases imported.
