Notes "There is always a very close connection between the bottle, the place, the moment and the people with whom you enjoy it. This cuvée is the result of four-handed work with Pierre from the Terre Forte estate. Pierre is a joyous and good-natured winemaker, simple and welcoming: so share this bottle with your best friends around a generous dish! " - Fred Niger
