The vineyard is located between 300 and 350 metres of altitude in the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail, this admirable mountain finely sculpted by erosion. It looks like majestic stoned lace. A real sculpture reachs a height of 755 metres. The soils is argilo-calcareous. The vineyards spread along the hillsides and therefore benefit the hours of maximal sunshine. To elaborate our "Parpaillon", we select our best vines trained on stakes of wood.

Parpaillon 2017, the jewel and flagship of our range will surprise you once again. We find obviously this delicate nose of garrigue, the place of its birth. Garrigue, rosemary, thyme but also warm vanilla notes, black chocolate.
The mouth is elegant and warm, heady and fluid at the same time. The aromatic notes are: the grenadine, the old rum, the flint.
A nice length and an extraordinary elegance, this "butterfly" will offer you wonderful feelings.
Pan-fried foie gras or a French lamb stew.
Enjoy it now or you can keep it at least 20 years in your cellar.
Serve slightly chilled (15°C) for its first 5 years.
