Xavier Vignon, the responsible oenologist, refers to the 'Magic of Terroirs' as the foundation for this exceptional Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Only rigorously hand-selected grapes from countless ancient plots are considered for this luxurious wine. After careful, separate fermentation of all grape varieties and the blending process, the wine matures for over 15 months, with a quarter in new barrels, wooden casks, demi-muids, and concrete tanks. This represents the pinnacle of winemaking artistry, resulting in an immensely dense, truly magnificent, and rightfully top-rated Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
