The rarest expression of the Château, the Origine cuvée has elevated the estate to one of the best in the appellation with this full-bodied RED 2014 with its soft, coated tannins, which was recently praised by the PRESS.
The use of "boutes" (large 600-litre barrels made of Allier oak) has brought woody notes and opened up a wide range of aromas typical of our appellation.
