The cellar's finest jewel This magic offering is only made during exceptional years.

Thanks to these qualities, this product was awarded two gold medal at the Challenge to the best French wines for Asia and the Japan International Wine Challenge in 2013.
This wine is marvelous as an aperitif! Highly gifted, its magnificent structure enables it to pair with world cuisine such as curry, saffron-flavored risotto, stuffed crab, or meat cooked with spices. It is also perfectly well suited to cheese such as Pont l'Evêque, Munster, Maroilles or Comté. But equally a tasty heavenly delight with an almond apple pie, honey ice-cream or a litchi fruit salad!
