This prestige cuvée is produced from old vines in parcel exploited entirely as a monopole by the Thévenet family. This highly concentrated wine of limited production is aged in cuve and displays a powerful constitution with great density. It is marked also by notes of tilleul and jasmine in the bouquet and hints of pear in its flavor.
