WINES
Our red wines are generous, suttle and full-bodied. Served between 16° and 18°C, there are excellant with cured meat (paté, ham, etc.) and red meats, but to discover the best of their character (and the character of our vineyards) we would suggest partridge or wild boar.

Il est venu le temps de boire...
Our rosé wines, of a clear salmony pink are supple and fruity, an excellant balance between the traditional methods of our fathers and the most modern methodes available. Served chilled (between 6° and 8°C) they are excellent with seafood and fish.

Our red wines matured in oak casks has a round woody taste which enhances but does not overide their natural fruity mellow tannin character, wich portrays the speciality and tradition of this vineyard. We can taste the mixture of nature and knowledge.
